Listen to Foxygen Rap Over Jimi Hendrix on ’24 Hour Lover Man’
Despite a flawless performance on the Late Show With David Letterman earlier this year, Foxygen recently announced that their upcoming tour would be their last as a band. That all seems a bit unsure, though, as new evidence points to at least some sort of future for them. Last week (April 30), Foxygen posted the brand new song, "24 Hour Lover Man," an unconventional hip-hop track that samples the late Jimi Hendrix. You can listen to the clip above.
The video's caption reads, "Straight from the space age," and that seems to hold somewhat true, with a sample of Hendrix's "Manic Depression" looping over harsh lyrics like, "I'm on some post-Ezra Koenig f---in' North Face bulls--- boyfriend" and "Drake’s nice but he ain’t got rhymes like I f---ed Freddy Krueger's eyeballs while listening to Black Dice on ecstasy."
Foxygen released their latest album, ...And Star Power, back in October, and although the band posted to Twitter, "THANKYOU so much to r family,friends,managers,label and most of all YOU.This will be our LAST tour," Pitchfork recently stated that the upcoming tour will only be the final tour of their fictional band, Star Power.
