I want to put this weekend behind me. I talked so much shit about Tennessee and its namesake university last week, and it all came back to me once they beat the shit out of Florida in the second half Saturday. I lost my voice from yelling so much during those final 30 minutes of play.
When I wrote about Clarksville, Tennessee natives Case Arnold and Tim Gent’s “Know Us” last week, I said I couldn’t acknowledge anything from their home state on account of the impending matchup against UF, but now that it’s behind us and my hope for an SEC championship visit has been nearly dissolved to a pulp, I have to make my reparations by making sure you get this new product from Tennessee in your ears.
Case Arnold‘s newest tune comes in the form of “Love Found,” which thematically resembles Common’s “I Used To Love H.E.R.” — where he dissects a troubled relationship that turns out to be with hip-hop.
“During the time that I made ‘Love Found,’ I had just started making beats and diving into that side of myself – I was studying Dilla, Common, Badu, and The Roots just going through records and catching those vibes,” Case told us over email. “As soon as the loop started the hook came to me instantly. I wrote the song with the perspective of seeing the person you love for the first time in years after not speaking. The circle that always leads back to you.”
The song is produced by himself under the Chiefus alias.
“Love Found” is the first single from Case’s upcoming SO(U)L Theory project, which should drop some time by the end of the year.
Listen to the song below.
