Cartoon Network offshoot Adult Swim have recently announced their sixth annual Singles series. The 2015 lineup is immense and dazzling – every single upcoming track looks like it’s going to be amazing, and it features a couple pretty amazing collaborations. The cartoon TV network, who make largely animated comedy shows, have dipped their toes into the music world on many occasions, including using their many late night shows to share music from upcoming artists, launching careers of many – notably Flying Lotus and Run The Jewels.
Each year, the Singles series produces some of the best tracks of that entire year – many of which you’ll already know. Blending some of the biggest and best artists in the world with some of the brightest upcoming acts, it’s a great way for us to hear new music of all styles – and some brilliant exposure for the smaller ones. Just look at their lists from 2012, 2013 and 2014. Yeah. Wow.
So it’s pretty big news that this might be their best one yet.
Spanning just about every genre imaginable – with a heady offering of hip hop. Featured artists include pop queen Sia, good ol’ Skrillex, Danny Brown, metal overlords Slayer, Run The Jewels (who, incidentally, were introduced via Adult Swim Vice President Jason DeMarco) and the legendary DOOMSTARKS, a mythical collaboration between Ghostface Killah and DOOM. Holy moly.
