Earlier this month, we caught a preview of Flying Lotus‘ collaboration with DOOM and Earl Sweatshirt, which we assumed was part of Adult Swim’s series of free singles. But as they say, assuming can make an ass out of everyone involved, myself included, so I was quick to amend the post to reflect that. We caught some flack from readers who looked at the Adult Swim schedule and saw that the Flying Lotus/Captain Murphy track was listed as featuring DOOM alter-ego Viktor Vaughn and not Earl.
As a result of all this, I reached out to someone at Adult Swim who confirmed my suspicions. And, thank the music lords, the song is finally here. It’s called “Between Villains”, a clear nod to Earl and Murphy’s prior cut “Between Friends”, and also features Thundercat. Yeah, this is awesome.

UPDATE: You can now download “Between Villains” on Adult Swim’s website.
