Everybody’s favourite sad Swedish rapper Yung Lean is back with a new track today, ahead of the release of the deluxe edition of his sophomore album Warlord. Entitled Pearl Fountain, the track is classic Lean and will appeal to fans of the Sad Boy rapper and his crew.
Pearl Fountain is just one of the new cuts taken from the repackaged album, with Lean enlisting the help of regular contributor and Gravity Boy member Bladee and Goth Money Records C.E.O. Black Kray. Each MC brings their own flair to the track, with Lean’s off-kilter flow, Bladee’s heavily auto-tuned vocals and Kray’s slurry rhymes working well together over the spacey, 90s rave production courtesy of Yung Sherman and Acea.
While the details on the deluxe edition of Warlord are scarce, if Pearl Fountain is anything to go by then the extra tracks will be worth forking out your hard earned for again. I really enjoyed the original version of Warlord (check out my review here), as Lean experimented with his sound and displayed a maturity in his song writing, even if he’s still rapping about video games, early 00s nostalgia and drug culture.
The deluxe edition of Warlord drops Friday April 29 and you can download Pearl Fountain for free here.
