Watch Woodkid Perform a New Song Called “Volcano”

Woodkid played a show in Paris earlier this month, during which he played a surprising new song called “Volcano.” After the delicate piano intro, martial drums kick in, and Woodkid asks “Paris, are you ready to dance?” before a raw, aggressive, straight-up nasty beat drops in, accompanied by some excellent visuals. Although there are those flourishes of his more “traditional” sound in the sweeping horns, this purely instrumental track sounds like a cross between a beat that could have been used on Yeezus and Gesaffelstein’s gritty techno. Check it out above.
