There's some expertly spun dark imagery and wordplay at work in the stream-of-consciousness flow of Chance the Rapper on Nosaj Thing's new track, 'Cold Stares'. The production is sharp and simplistic, muted whipcrack snares keeping time with a set of organic thudding kicks as a theremin-flavoured wave of cosmic sound persists throughout; the galactic blanket upon which vocals and ornamentations are placed with precision.

It's taken from Nosaj Thing's just-announced album, Fated, out 5th May on Innovative Leisure, and his latest since 2013's Home. Check out the tracklist below.
