Again, so much for Lupe Fiasco‘s planned retirement: The rapper has just unveiled details of a new single, “Old School Love,” assisted by ginger crooner extraordinaire Ed Sheeran. The track will be the first from his upcoming LP Tetsuo and Youth, his first since 2012′s Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album; the single hits digital retailers on Monday , October 14.
It’s another feather in the ol’ cap for Sheeran, who’s proving himself to be surprisingly versatile in his willingness to collaborate and experiment; the team-up isn’t a surprise for Fiasco, who proved deft when he duetted with Australian singer Guy Sebastian on the underrated “Battle Scars.”
No word yet on other details about Fiasco’s album, except that it may include a song called “Crack” featuring Chris Brown. Sigh.
