Earlier this year, XL Recordings owner and founder Richard Russell dropped his debut studio project under the Everything Is Recorded moniker. Known as Close But Not Quite, the seven-track EP featured high-profile collaborations with talented artists like Sampha, Giggs and others. Now, Richard Russell has followed up his very first multi-track offering as Everything Is Recorded with a huge new joint single.

Dubbed “Mountains of Gold,” Everything Is Recorded’s latest record features show-stealing contributions from past collaborator Sampha, Ibeyi, Wiki and Kamasi Washington. Built upon a flip of a popular Grace Jones sample, “Mountains of Gold” is a seamless blend of hard-hitting soul and heavy, boom-bap-esque grooves.

Debuted via its official video and a single stream, you can check out Everything Is Recorded, Sampha, Ibeyi, Wiki and Kamasi Washington’s new collaborative cut “Mountains of Gold” above; check out the audio-only version below.

Late last month, Wiki dropped his first official album as a solo artist, No Mountains in Manhattan.
