Months after releasing III, another consistently enjoyable album in its ever-growing catalog, enigmatic Toronto hip-hop-jazz trio BADBADNOTGOOD returns with the one-off single 'Velvet'.

For more familiar listeners, 'Velvet' may not have the uptempo hip-hop-centric pounce that the trio is commonly associated with. Rather, 'Velvet' showcases their impassioned natural jazz talents with Alex Sowinski ringing home on the vibraphone. Retro for some, possibly, but consciously joyful at its core.

Stream 'Velvet' below and look out for BADBADNOTGOOD on their upcoming short string of U.S. tour dates, starting October 9th at The Barn at UC Riverside, California.
