I had a lot of love for K-OS’ 2006 release Atlantis: Hymns for Disco, specifically for the catchy-as-hell single Sunday Morning. That was so long ago, he was spelling his name k-os … or maybe it was K-os. Hell, I can’t keep up.
The Canadian-based musician is returning with the full-length Yes!, due out March 31. The album’s first single is 4 3 2 1, a response of sorts to his friend Feist’s hit 1, 2, 3, 4. K-OS explains in the obligatory bio material: â€œI thought how interesting would it be to do a hip hop version of this song? Itâ€™s about the battle of the sexes, where Iâ€™m rapping ‘what are we fighting for?’ Is this gender war going to happen forever? Itâ€™s me saying I hope not.â€
The video is below (and you may recognize the loop as the same one from the Pharcyde’s Soul Flower.)
