Hear Future’s Celebratory, Hard-Hitting ‘Covered N Money’

future, honest, covered n money

Future will finally return on April 22 with Honest, his long-in-the-works follow-up to 2011’s Pluto. The latest track we’re privvy to, “Covered N Money,” continues the Auto-Tuned street hero’s recent run of victorious, stomping anthems — see the sci-fi-sounding, hashtag-friendly title track and the ’80s-nodding, synth-squelching anthem “Move That Dope.”

Produced by Sonny Digital (best known for YC’s “Racks,” which introduced Future to rap radio, and Future’s own “Same Damn Time”), “Covered N Money” is all brutal skitter, punctuated by twinkling John Carpenter synthesizers and hard-hitting, kick-you-in-the-gut snares that suggest dubstep-tinged EDM trap as much as they do straightforward trap music. It appears clear that on Honest, Future is shifting away from the “Future Vandross” mode that gave us heartwarming robo-ballads like “Turn On The Lights” and the Miley Cyrus-assisted “Real and True,” and instead embracing the aggressive, unrelenting eccentricity encountered on tracks like “Tony Montana” and “Same Damn Time.”

“Covered N Money” will be featured on Future’s upcoming Honest (pre-order the Standard or Deluxe Edition), out April 22, but you can stream it above right now.
