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: “I thought how interesting would it be to do a hip hop version of this song? It’s about the battle of the sexes, where I’m rapping ‘what are we fighting for?’ Is this gender war going to happen forever? It’s me saying I hope not.”
The video is below (and you may recognize the loop as the same one from the Pharcyde’s Soul Flower.)
