Gangrene –AKA the mighty musical fusion of Oh No & Alchemist— are following up their absolutely stellar score to GTA V with a bit of a spinoff, unveiling that they’ll be releasing a new album in The Alchemist and Oh No Present: Welcome to Los Santos. Today they’ve shared the very first taste of the album (which will be prominently featured in the game’s forthcoming PC release) in the expertly crafted heater “Play It Cool,” featuring a dazzling lyrical exhibition from young Earl Sweatshirt and a heavy, very P-Funk hook sung by The Future Island’s Samuel T. Herring.
While PC gamers will be the first to get their ears on the new tunes from No and Alan the Chemist as they fulfill all of their wildest and most dastardly virtual fantasies, the standalone album will be dropping on April 21st via Mass Appeal Records with a laundry list of choice collaborators, including Killer Mike, Freddie Gibbs, Tunde Adebimpe and plenty more. Below you’ll find the first drop “Play It Cool” with Earl Sweatshirt and Samuel T. Herring, but make sure your ears are perked. We’re bound to get more flame from the project in the weeks to come.
