He tells Rolling Stone, which premiered the track, that he created “Outro” after being released from jail (though it never says what he was in for): “I had a strong urge to run so I made a song that made me feel like I was being chased.” The rap-meets-rock vibe brings the Judgment Night soundtrack to mind, and I’m not one to say if that’s a good or bad thing since I still have my copy of the soundtrack on cassette.
The “Outro” single was released today (iTunes link) and the song will appear on Cut Chemist’s upcoming album, A Die Cut, due out on his own label A Stable Sound (haven’t seen a release date).
