alt-J have released ‘3WW‘ featuring Little Simz (OTG Version), another new track from their forthcoming ‘REDUXER‘ project.
The new version of the song is a collaboration between the band with 24-year-old, award winning UK rapper Little Simz and OTG, a London producer-songwriter signed to Simz’s AGE 101 label.
“We are very excited to share this reinterpretation of ‘3WW‘ with you,” explained alt-J.
“Little Simz is a huge talent from our adopted home of London, and what she and OTG have done blows our minds.
“Let us know what you think…”
‘3WW‘ (feat. Little Simz) (OTG Version) comes hot on the heels of ‘In Cold Blood‘ (feat. Pusha T) (Twin Shadow Version) and ‘Deadcrush‘ (feat. Danny Brown) (Alchemist x Trooko Version), released earlier this summer.
