billy woods and Kenny Segal Enlist Future Islands’ Samuel T. Herring for New Song ‘FaceTime’

    New York rapper billy woods and Los Angeles producer Kenny Segal have teamed up with Future Islands’ Samuel T. Herring for a new song, ‘FaceTime’. It’s the first offering from their upcoming album Maps, which also features guest appearances from Danny Brown, Aesop Rock, Quelle Chris, ShrapKnel, Benjamin Booker, and woods’ Armand Hammer bandmate Elucid. The LP arrives May 5. Listen to ‘FaceTime’ below.

    “It was late summer 2022 and most days I was stuck in my hotel room wondering what was happening with my life…,” Herring said of the collaboration in a statement. “All of that being on the road and living remotely, feeling alienated, alone, missing people back home, but also feeling at home living that way – I understood it deeply…. That song is my life and I was living in it.”

    Maps will follow woods and Segal’s 2019 collaborative LP, Hiding Places. “Neither of us wanted to make Hiding Places 2,” woods commented. “We needed to go on other journeys, artistic and otherwise, to come back and do something fresh.” Segal added, “I think we both like to paint a picture. Him with words, and me with sound.”
