Danny Brown Debuts New Song “Rolling Stone,” Talks About His Love for Nas
We’re 15 days out from Danny Brown’s new album Atrocity Exhibition, and it’s finally time for a new single: “Rolling Stone,” which features production and backup vocals by South African singer-songwriter Petite Noir. The song debuted today on NPR, where Brown also recorded a thoughtful interview with writer Timmhotep Aku.
“Rolling Stone” was one of the last pieces of Exhibition to come together, after Petit Noir reached out via Twitter DM, Brown told Aku. The pair also discussed Nas’ “The World Is Yours,” the song Brown says most affected him as a young listener.
The previous peeks at Atrocity Exhibition were “When It Rain” and “Pneumonia.” Below, listen to Brown’s full interview, including “Rolling Stone” at the 26:06 mark. If NPR’s snippet of “The World Is Yours” wasn’t quite enough, the full song follows.
