UPDATE: Goldlink drops the video for “Zulu Screams.” The video was directed by Meji and shot in London.

ORIGINAL STORY: Towards the end of March, GoldLink reconnected with Denzel Curry and Twelve’len for the dark music video in support of their TA13OO collaboration “Black Ballons.” Now, the forward-thinking DMV artist is back with a new single of his own, “Zulu Screams.” Notably, “Zulu Screams” features guest contributions from producer Maleek Berry and talented singer-songwriter Bibi Bourelly and is billed as an introduction to the sound and sonic direction of his next studio album.

“It was actually the first song that I did for the upcoming album,” GoldLink reveals to Zane Lowe, explaining the origins of “Zulu Screams” for an exclusive Beats 1 interview. “And we knew it was special right away. We wanted to make sure like, ‘Who was the perfect person that we got?’ to take it to the next level and we were like, ‘Let’s try Maleek,’ and then Maleek was super down and he killed it, took it to another level.”

“It’s natural progression of where I felt like I was going to head anyway,” GoldLink adds, opening up about his forthcoming full-length project for the first time. “I wouldn’t say it’s entirely what the whole kind of sonic of it is, but it’s a good intro for like a whole world building thing that I’m trying to like introduce. You know, after I kind of did my love letter to D.C. Kind of thing, I wanted to figure out what was the pulse, why I love my city so much and I think the answer wasn’t directly in the city. I think it was more so directly somewhere else. I’ve never had as much fun making a record because I think that I went about it … Like I never went to another place outside of D.C. to make a record. I’ve never garnered a group of guys and kind of made something cohesive with just, you know, a group of guys. I normally have like, this person, that person, this or that person. But now this time I have like a central group of guys and then you kind of add people around it. That alone, that made the experience like a little more fun.”

You can stream GoldLink’s new, Maleek Berry- and Bibi Bourelly-assisted single “Zulu Screams” above, and keep an eye out for more new releases in the near future.

A couple of months ago, an unreleased track from a rumored collaborative project from Andre 3000 and GoldLink hit the internet.
