Kitty Cash's Love The Free II drops tomorrow, a compilation of some of the most left-of-center R&B bubbling up from FADER favorites including SZA, Dev Hynes, and Yuna. Today, Cash liberates "8" via MTV, featuring Willow Smith singing ambitious falsettos over a sparse Azzi-produced instrumental that could easily be a Wet demo or an early Erykah album cut. After popping up onstage alongside SZA at Brooklyn's latest record store/venue Rough Trade, Willow, who dabbled in heavy-handed pop just a few short years ago, continues her foray into a new experimental sound and style. Take the money, take the fame, all I want is truth, she sings, with the kind of wide-eyed existentialism you can really only get away with at thirteen. Still, this is cooler than anything we were doing at that age.
