Raekwon Releases New Song 'The Living Room'

(Radio.com) By no means should Raekwon fans be decrying the lack of new material right now; Wu-Tang Clan is about to release new material, after all. But the rapper has his own solo material to dispense too, including new track "The Living Room," released yesterday (April 10).

Over a bed of horns, applause and soul samples, the man born Corey Woods spits rapid-fire verses in multiple segments. "The Living Room," after all, is not a traditional song in the sense that it sticks to one idea through repeated verse and chorus deliveries. The tune jumps between samples and feels, from a more horn-infused approach at its beginning to soulful backing "oohs" and piano beneath a second part.

Finally, the song - or at least Raekwon's part - ends rather abruptly, finishing out with a sample the Bacharach-David tune "Walk On By" performed by Dionne Warwick.

"The Living Room" precedes a potential Raekwon release of his album Fly International Luxurious Art, which has been teased since 2013 and is currently slated for release next month - though nothing's set in stone just yet.
