Shabazz Palaces will release their second full-length collection of distorted and distended hip-hop tracks, Lese Majesty, later this month and they've offered another taste of it today in the form of "Forerunner Foray." Like "#Cake" and "They Come in Gold" before it, this new cut further abstracts the bleary outlines presented on Black Up, and allows frontman Ishmael Butler to go the full stoner-mystic route under some watery vocal filters and burbling synth arpeggios. Listen to the song above alongside another psychedelic visual (but not the official video). Lese Majesty is due July 29 on Sub Pop.
