Danger Mouse and Black Thought have teamed up with Michael Kiwanuka for ‘Aquamarine’, the latest single from their upcoming collaborative LP Cheat Codes. Check out the song’s music video below.
“For ‘Aquamarine’, when I heard the music I just had a feeling to sing about standing up for something that’s unique and following that path,” Kiwanuka said in a press release. “I don’t know why but that’s what came out. Sometimes when you’re following something that’s unique to you it’s as if ‘enemies are all around’. At times life can feel fragile like ‘everything’s burning down’. For some reason the chords and music made me feel that way.”
Cheat Codes arrives on August 12 via BMG. So far, it’s been previewed with the singles ‘No Gold Teeth’ and ‘Because’. Michael Kiwanuka released his Danger Mouse-produced, Mercury Music Prize-winning album Kiwanuka in 2019.
