Standing On The Corner has kept busy the past handful of years, teaming up with major names like Solange and Earl Sweatshirt for collaborations following the group’s 2017 mixtape Red Burns. Their latest offering, “Angel (Life and Death of the Earth in the Key of F)” sees the art collective link with legendary artist, filmmaker, composer Quasimoto/ Madlib collaborator Melvin Van Peebles for a new music video.

The 87-year-old Van Peebles stars as an astronaut lost in space, gradually accepting the looming darkness and the unknown universe that’s presented to him. “With consciousness waning, and only the pure BLACK of unknown ahead, what awaits our protagonist? Tune in to the mysterious cycle of awe, resolve, release, and to the elsewhere of space, a setting where we can see existence itself regenerate,” the group released in a recent press release ahead of the video launch.

Standing On The Corner was launched in 2016 by Shamel Cee Mystery in Brooklyn, New York.The group rose to prominence following the release of their eponymous debut Standing on the Corner. Watch the full visual above and stream the group’s new single below.
