Madlib and Four Tet are prepping for the release of their collab album Sound Ancestors with the brand new single, “Dirtknock.”

Clocking in at just over minutes, “Dirtknock” is a bass guitar-heavy cut and features an unnamed female vocalist who adds another layer of sonic texture to the otherwise subtle track. This marks the duo’s third release from the album, following “Hopprock” and “Road of the Lonely Ones.”

The two shared more info about Sound Ancestors and revealed that it will be a 16-track project.In a previous statement, Four Tet explained that the album has been in the works for a few years now: “He is always making loads of music in all sorts of styles and I was listening to some of his new beats and studio sessions when I had the idea that it would be great to hear some of these ideas made into a Madlib solo album. Not made into beats for vocalists to use but instead arranged into tracks that could all flow together in an album designed to be listened to start to finish.”

He added, “I put this concept to him when we were hanging out eating some nice food one day and we decided to work on this together with him sending me tracks, loops, ideas and experiments that I would arrange, edit, manipulate and combine. I was sent hundreds of pieces of music over a couple of years stretch and during that time I put together this album with all the parts that fitted with my vision.”

Elsewhere in music, Billie Eilish and Rosalía finally released their collab “Lo Vas A Olvidar.”
