Corbin (formerly known as Spooky Black) has been fairly quiet ever since the release of his and Bobby Raps Couch Potato EP back in June of 2015, even having left his Twitter dormant for most of the year. But lucky for fans, it appears that he's made good use of this time, as during his set at FYF Fest in Los Angeles, the young artist debuted some new music featuring none other than Shlohmo.
The unnamed collaborative track features minimal, atmospheric production by Shlohmo that allows Corbin's impassioned vocals to shine through, further highlighting his talent. The result is a haunting and beautiful offering that ultimately hints at a larger project between the two, which Corbin slyly implied during his performance.
This wouldn't be the first collaboration between Corbin and Shlohmo, having previously worked together for "Worn." Judging by the quality of "Worn" and this new song, a collaborative album would be an exciting addition to both Corbin and Shlohmo's respective catalogs.
Watch Corbin debut his Shlohmo-assisted untitled song above. Read more about FYF Fest and check out some photos from this year below.

Ice cream cones drip, greasy pizza is devoured, and cigarettes are passed on the steps surrounding the L.A. Coliseum. Soon the surrounding area will turn into a football haven, but last week fans young and old poured in to enjoy LA’s FYF festival. Created by Sean Carlson in 2004, the festival has come a long from its DIY beginnings. Goldenvoice has brought the festival into its repertoire and has curated lineups that satisfy almost every type of music-lover, without any unnecessary bells and whistles. If Coachella is California’s premier festival to be seen, FYF is to see.
Fans screamed when Corbin shyly took the stage. Grace Jones had people literally dancing in tears in both VIP and GA. Tame Impala and LCD Soundsystem delivered classic nostalgia inducing nighttime sets that had thousands of people singing along. Rae Sremmurd sprayed the crowd with a bottle of champagne five minutes before they even went on. And Charles Bradley had us all questioning how he wasn’t discovered earlier from his former job as a James Brown impersonator. Vince Staples rocked everyone to the core with his new EP, bringing two girls almost to hysterics in the front row. Kendrick Lamar delivered cuts from his album To Pimp a Butterfly to an overflowing main stage and every single person knew the words. It was a big weekend full of little moments, one that reminded me that music festivals can be more than okay, sometimes.
