De La Soul continue to drop new tracks prior to the August 26th release of their new crowd-funded LP And the Anonymous Nobody…, with “Greyhounds” featuring Usher the latest preview of the group’s first album as a trio in 12 years.
Like the dreamy “Drawn” with Little Dragon, “Greyhounds” is a lush, laid-back cut about people searching for meaning in life and taking the popular bus line to find it. “She just want a new zip code for a new dream,” Posdnuos raps of the song’s main protagonist.
“I can see it on your face/ I know how to get there and I give you my word that I’ll get you there safe,” Usher sings. “Greyhounds” follows And the Anonymous Nobody… previews like the Snoop Dogg-featuring “Pain,” “Drawn,” “Royalty Capes” and “Trainwreck.” Besides Snoop and Little Dragon, the LP boasts an eclectic assortment of guest performers, from Talking Heads’ David Byrne, the Darkness’ Justin Hawkins and their Gorillaz buddy Damon Albarn to Pete Rock and Roc Marciano.
