After dropping off his latest Zelda-themed banger “Hyrule Temple,” Bay Area musician Derek Pope enlists Larry June for an extra healthy follow-up from Pope’s upcoming project, We’re All Strangers.
Produced by Pope, the sounds of Martian seashores flow over digital harps and growling bass as Pope croons over the hook: “Frosted, green light / don’t leave that door open / I’m too plugged,” with Larry’s famous ad-libs sprinkled on top. The two trade verses, detailing the lavish rewards of getting hooked up extensively through the constant grind. As the song fades, Pope reveals an underlying commentary on how we’ve become too plugged into all the technology we utilize every day.
We’re All Strangers comes out February 16. Stay tuned.
