Mr. Hudson will release his new album When The Machine Stops next month, but first he drops “Chicago” featuring Vic Mensa.
The UK artist says this of the collaboration:
“Once I had the song, I knew I wanted it to sound like Chicago. The drums were really important. Once I got the track sounding right with Johan, I called Vic. We’re always a good fit because he’s not afraid of wearing his heart on the sleeve of his motorcycle jacket. I went to his studio, which looks like a punk music venue, and he cut his verse in a couple takes. It’s emotional but it’s proud. Anger can be a useful emotion.”
Mr. Hudson and Vic Mensa collaborated in 2017 on the track “Coldplay.”
