Baroque pop musician Sufjan Stevens has once again lent his unique mastery to the world of hip hop. His newest project s/s/s with Son Lux and rapper Serengeti released "Museum Day," the first song off their upcoming EP Beak & Claw.
"Museum Day" is a slow jam, heavy on the autotune with futuristic electronic beats, reminiscent of Stevens' last album The Age of Adz. Serengeti's rhymes are more spoken word than rap, his matter-of-fact style not overwhelming the borderline overproduced song.
Though on there verge of excessive, "Museum Day" is six minutes of music not far from what we'd expect from Stevens -- experimental and beautiful.
Beak & Claw is set to be released on March 20 on Anticon records.
