Here's the opening track of Danny Brown's Old LP, out September 30th via Fools Gold. Produced by Paul White with a baleful set of horns, the track firmly situates the album's first half in the realm of low-voiced Linwood Danny, the depressive antihero of past dark cuts like "Scrap or Die," doomed and driving a shit-colored pickup. Hearing him overdub an AK's Doot-doot-doot-doot! should let you crack a grin, though, as well as the fact that, oh my god, new Danny album is so close. For some context, read our 2012 cover story, "Coming from Behind."
