Scottish pop rock act Texas has enlisted Staten Island’s Wu-Tang Clan for their brand new single, “Hi.”

Clocking in at almost three minutes, the cut hears frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri sharing the spotlight with RZA and Ghostface Killah — all three of them offering their unique voices over an Ennio Morricone style guitar.

“Hi” serves as a single from Texas’ upcoming album of the same name and is the Wu’s first piece of new music in three years. It follows the two groups’ 1997 collab “Say What You Want,” which appeared on the band’s White on Blonde album.

The single also arrives with an accompanying music video directed by Fenn O’Meally and starring Top Boy‘s Kadeem Ramsay. Its visual sees the actor essentially kidnapping Spiteri to try and convince Texas to do a new Wu-Tang collab, and instead of getting angry, she phones RZA and allows him to speak to Ramsay about the partnership. After he hangs up, Ramsay profusely apologizes to the frontwoman who shrugs it off, saying he didn’t even tied her up properly in the first place.

Elsewhere in music, take a listen to Benny Blanco’s new collab with the late Juice WRLD entitled “Real Shit.”
