Artist: The Cloak Ox feat. Tunde Adebimpe
Song: "King Rope"
Album: Shoot the Dog
"This song was written partially after taking two separate, but equally revelatory litter-strewn strolls: one in Zurich, the other on St. Paul's East Side," The Cloak Ox's Andrew Broder tells Rolling Stone. "It's a song about freedom, bondage, freedom from bondage and freedom in bondage, with multiple narrators asking themselves, in the prophetic words of Mr. David Byrne, 'Well... How did I get here?'"
