Theophilus London and Ariel Pink Are Looking for “Revenge”
Theophilus London is back with "Revenge," a new, moody track that finds him crooning over a majestic beat featuring reverb-soaked drum loops and razor sharp guitar riffs. Theophilus is never one to follow a trend and he doesn't on this track that features fellow rebel Ariel Pink. The song is produced by TL and is an interpolation of New Musik’s 1981 track “They All Run After The Carving Knife (See How They Run).” He teased it via social media and it was the soundtrack to Off-White's latest runway show.
"The race is on, baby, yeah/For just how long?/They attack, they defend, baby, woah/To reach the end," he sings on his verse. "Revenge" is a free loosie for NY Theo fans via Fool's Gold. London's official single on the new label drops in 2017. Listen to the new song above.
Back in 2014 Yeezy signed on to executive produce Theo's sophomore LP, Vibes, which dropped that November. The highly underrated album boasted hit singles such as “Can’t Stop.”
