After making their debut live last month as the collaboration, Big Boi and Phantogram have finally released their first single under the moniker Big Grams. The trio revealed the song Fell in the Sun as the lead single form their forthcoming EP under the same name Big Grams.
The Outkast alumni joins the indie-pop duo for a song that is cinematic and spacious in scope, underplayed with some seriously slicks synth and rap hooks, featuring a shout out to Atlanta and New York, where Big Boi and Phantogram come from respectively, from the latter’s Sarah Barthel.
Big Boi, who was impressed by Phantogram’s Mouthful of Diamonds, reached out to the two after he shazaamed the song off an ad it was featured in. They collaborated together on three songs from Big Boi’s Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours solo album, and it was only natural that their own EP, Big Grams, followed it.
The track debuted on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show and can be heard below:
