Fans are celebrating Surf Day with even more music from Chance the Rapper. That’s because Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment have unveiled a new song, “The First Time,” in honor of their critically-acclaimed album’s one-year anniversary.
The song, which runs over 10 minutes, is a melodic journey with Chance singing and delivering rhymes throughout. It’s a multi-layered release with pauses, transitions, and tempo shifts that make it feel like several cuts in one.
Chance, who just released his new mixtape Coloring Book, dropped Surf with Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment last year. The star-studded project features uncredited guest spots from J. Cole, Big Sean, and Busta Rhymes, among others.
Listen to “The First Time” below.
