LISTEN: Nosaj Thing Shares “Cold Stares” Featuring Chance the Rapper, Announces New Record

The new track comes complete with a Lord of the Rings reference

Los Angeles beat-master Nosaj Thing (a.k.a. Jason Chung) has dropped a brooding new track called “Cold Stares” that features the ever eclectic Chance the Rapper.

“Cold Stares” is the first single ahead of Nosaj Thing’s third LP Fated, the title of which, according to Chung, comes from “a perpetual feeling of déjà vu.”

“The last record took out so much of me. It was a battle,” says Chung. “I just wanted to go back to simplifying. The soul of a song, the essence of a song—whatever you want to call it—should be simple.”
