SPIN favorite Le1f has signed with XL Recordings in a joint venture with Terrible Records, the label co-run by Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor. A proper album is in the works, but first we'll be treated to the Hey EP, which will include a re-recorded version of the man's beloved breakout "Wut" (the one with the video starring those Pikachu studs), along with four brand new songs. The first of those, "Boom," can be heard below in all of its left-field "Southern Hospitality"-recalling excellence. Dubbel Dutch lends his production prowess to the darkly popping cut, while beats for the rest of the March 11 digital release (May 6 for vinyl) come from Matrixxman, Harry B, and Boody (remember "Soda"?). To date, the man born Khalif Diouf has released three praise-worthy mixtapes: Dark York, Fly Zone, and Tree House. In a statement, Le1f called working with XL "my teenage dream."
