New music today from Capital Cities, the Los Angeles space rangers, five days away from releasing In a Tidal Wave of Mystery. “Farrah Fawcett Hair” features a blindside appearance from André 3000, who pops his head in for 16 bars between the gospel galaxy rock, carving out his space and creating his own melody before disappearing again. It’s been a tough week for the Atlanta rapper, but his verse fits in beautifully, adding another chapter to the canon of Dré.
As a bonus, “Farrah Fawcett Hair” is narrated by NPR’s sonorous Frank Tavares. That sentence will really only make sense after you listen to the song. It works. Listen to the track above.
