Adult Swim launched its 2015 Singles program this month, promising exclusive tracks from a different artist every week. The latest release comes from Owen Pallett, who has turned more of the classically minded pop music found on his most recent LP, In Conflict.

Over the coming weeks, Adult Swim will release singles from the likes of Peaches, Danny Brown with Clams Casino, Shabazz Palaces, Slayer, Ghostface Killah and Doom’s DOOMSTARKS, Flying Lotus, and Run the Jewels. That’s not all, so stay tuned.
