Danny Brown Releases New Song “Pneumonia”
With his new album Atrocity Exhibition set to drop Sept. 30, Danny Brown comes back with another song off the LP. This time it's "Pneumonia," produced by Kanye West collaborator Evian Christ, and you can hear it above, complete with background vocals from ScHoolboy Q. Below you can see Danny talking with Zane Lowe about the making of the song.
Just the other day, Danny let loose the tracklist for the album, and it features a couple eye-popping appearances. One song features Kendrick Lamar, Earl Sweatshirt and Ab-Soul together, while the stunning Kelela is featured on another. Producers include Alchemist, Black Milk, Paul White and more.
“With Old, I wanted to have those performance songs so I can play those shows,” Brown told Rolling Stone. “That was what was a part of my world, doing festivals. Whereas this album is just my sound. This is Danny Brown.” The rapper as well tells the publication that the album has $70,000 worth of samples on it. “A lot of people cheap. And that’s why their music sounds cheap,” he says. “I wanna make timeless stuff, so you’re gonna have to spend a couple dollars. You could have Rolex or you can have a Swatch.”
Hear "Pneumonia" above. It certainly is more XXX than Old.
