Adult Swim has announced the seventh incarnation of its Singles Program, and it’s bigger than ever. For the first time, the series will release one brand new track a week for an entire year; that’s 52 songs across a range of genres available for free streaming over 365 days. (The program has decided to forgo downloads this time because “people don’t download music anymore,” according to Adult Swim’s creative director Jason DeMarco.)
Run the Jewels, Brian Eno, Julian Casablancas + The Voidz, DOOM featuring Jay Electronica, Dinosaur Jr., Colin Stetson, Thundercat, Flying Lotus, Migos, Shabazz Palaces, and Explosions in the Sky are among the many great artists contributing new, original music to the series. Other confirmed participants include Knxwledge, Zola Jesus, SAD13, Tanya Tagaq, Sophie, Oddisee, Wavves, Washed Out, Julia Holter, Code Orange, and many, many more.
To kick off the year-long series, Adult Swim has shared lead track “Post To” from Gucci Mane and Future producer Zaytoven. The cut features Twista, Yung LA, and the late Atlanta rapper Bankroll Fresh. Take a listen below or over at Adult Swim.
Earlier this month, Adult Swim shared a dream pop compilation called LUXE, featuring tracks from Toro Y Moi, Múm, Neon Indian, Tei Shi, The Mountain Goats, and Wye Oak, among others. Before that, there was December’s appropriately titled NOISE comp with Arca, Merzbow, Noveller, Pharmakon, Prurient, clipping., Wolf Eyes, and Tanya Tagaq.
