Shabazz Palaces Shares “Goat Me (Feat. Cobra Coil)”

Shabazz Palaces takes a darkly aquatic dive in the official video for “Goat Me (feat. Cobra Coil)” from Exotic Birds of Prey (Sub Pop), his new, seven-song mini-album for 2024, out now. 
Shabazz Palaces is masterminded by vocalist and producer Ismael Butler, whose unstinting drive to reimagine hip-hop – even as he enjoys his fifth decade on Earth – remains undimmed. 

Exotic Birds of Prey furthers the modus operandi of its predecessor, Robed in Rareness – a respectful eye on the past, an embrace of an ever-evolving present, and its feet are firmly planted in the future. Where Robed… warped sounds like shoegaze and ambient music into the Shabazz Palaces multiverse, Exotic… cross-pollinates these elements with twisted electro and funk vibes. This new endeavor features collaborations with the likes of Stas THEE Boss and Irene Barber (“Angela”), Lavarr the Starr (“Take Me To Your Leader”), Japreme Magnetic (“Myths of the Occult”), OC Notes (“Well Known Nobody”), the aforementioned Cobra Coil, and Purple Tape Nate (“Exotic Birds of Prey”).

Next week, Shabazz Palaces will appear at My Morning Jacket’s “One Big Holiday” at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, April 4th-7th, 2024. Later that month, Shabazz Palaces’ European and UK dates in support of Robed in Rareness and Exotic Birds of Prey begin April 27th in Paris, France at Le Petit Bain and currently end May 22nd in Braga, PT at Gnration.
