With his Synthia project on hold (Or was it cancelled?), Alex Wiley has revealed a third installment of his Village Party series is on the way. And to help kick off the news, the Chicago native has shared a new song called “Still Calling” with London’s Jay Prince.
“The song started in a 3 a.m. album session at my place in L.A.,” Wiley told the FADER. “We had all been listening to hella James Blake, Archy Marshall/King Krule, and Sampha as like a palate-cleanser. I met Jay Prince a couple months earlier at Mike [Gao]’s house. We smoked and vibed on stuff we were working on; I think he really grasped the direction of the album. I was really surprised at how well his verse fit into the song, can’t fucking thank him enough.”
Produced by Mike Gao, “Still Calling” can be heard below. Check it out and be on the lookout for Village Party III: Stoner Symphony, dropping in January.
