Published Feb 15, 2015Earl Sweatshirt hasn't released an album since 2013's Doris, but he's been keeping fans satisfied with a string of tracks, and the trend continues with a new cut called "Quest/Power."
The song was made with producers Budgie and Samiyam. Earl posted it on SoundCloud along with the description "virtuous." It features a crawling beat with some dreamily soothing synth atmospherics, and vintage-sounding harmonies swell up in the syncopated second half. Meanwhile, Earl drops tongue-twisting rhymes about outrunning his demons and speaking his heart. He's certainly come a long way from the horror-rap of his mid teens.
