Adult Swim Gets Run the Jewels, Flying Lotus, Against Me! for 2016 Singles Series
Published May 23, 2016Once again, Atlanta-based cartoon hub Adult Swim has revealed plans to gift us free music. The network's Adult Swim Singles Program is back and bigger than ever before, and will feature new tunes from longtime allies Run the Jewels and Flying Lotus, as well as Against Me!, Tim Hecker, Vince Staples and more.
A press release confirms that this year's program will run a bit differently. The sixth annual series won't be limited to the summer months and will instead run from May to November. The debut instalment will be unveiled on May 25, but the artist dropping a track that day has yet to be confirmed.
That said, Adult Swim has revealed who all will be giving up the goods. As in previous years, the network has roped in Run the Jewels, Flying Lotus, Earl Sweatshirt, Kitty, Tim Hecker, and D∆WN.
Other acts attached to this year's series include Against Me!, HEALTH, Vince Staples, Ryan Hemsworth, Protomartyr, Rae Sremmurd, Mike WiLL Made-It, Jenny Hval, Metro Boomin' and more.
You'll find an alphabetical rundown of the lineup down below.
It's added that in addition to the songs being available to stream and download, the music will be promoted on-air through the Adult Swim network each week. It's unclear what this means, but hopefully this results in some wildly animated music videos. This year, the network premiered cartoon world clips for Black Mountain and Big Grams, among others.
