Young Fathers preview new album with manic song “Toy”: Stream

Mercury Prize-winning outfit Young Fathers are nearing closer to the release of their third album, Cocoa Sugar. The follow-up to 2015’s White Men Are Black Men Too has previously been hinted at with gorgeous first single “Lord” and last month’s emotional “In My View”. The Scotland-bred trio — that’s Alloysious Massaquoi, Graham ‘G’ Hastings, and Kayus Bankole — has rolled out a third offering in “Toy”.

“Chasing shadows in the gallows,” Young Fathers lament in the song’s opening seconds, after what sounds like a bout of heavy breathing. Their harrowing mission is appropriately soundtracked by music that’s fidgety and manic, synth-y jabs and percussive bits bouncing around like rubber balls.

Hear it down below.
