Labrinth Announces ‘Imagination & the Misfit Kid’ Album, Delivers Whimsical ‘Where The Wild Things’ Single

 

After delivering an electronically enchanting score for HBO's teen drama Euphoria, UK multihyphenate Labrinth gets to explore his own dreamworld with his forthcoming solo album Imagination & the Misfit Kid, which is due for release Nov. 22. He allows listeners to step into his ultra-creative compilation by releasing "Where the Wild Things" as a single today (Oct. 31).

On the heels of the lifting "God Is" ballad from Kanye West's first-ever gospel record Jesus Is King which he co-wrote and -produced, Labrinth delivers his own soaring vocals during the pre-chorus, "We float on air / So high off the ground / We float on air" and never lands after arriving at a heavenly debaucherous gathering. His valiant toast, "Put your f—ing glasses up" chimes to the tune of an electric flute.

Imagination & the Misfit Kid follows Labrinth on multiple gravity-defying quests garnished by instruments, including "Miracle" — a semi-autobiographical lo-fi tale about turning one's imagination into a business — "All For Us" with Zendaya off of the Euphoria soundtrack, "Something's Got To Give" and "Mount Everest."

Listen to "Where The Wild Things" below off of Imagination & the Misfit Kid, which is available for pre-order here.
