Toronto trio Keys N Krates announces the release date for its new album Original Classic, available everywhere on November 12th. With the announcement, Keys N Krates also shares the new single and album title track “Original Classic (feat. Juicy J, Chip, and Marbl).” The song is an impending party anthem lead by an entrancing, drum-driven beat and features verses from the legendary Juicy J, London heavyweight rapper Chip, and UK singer Marbl. “Original Classic” follows two other songs recently released from Keys N Krates, “Brazillian Love Song” and the Bibi Bourelly collaboration “Take It Off.”

Speaking on the latest single, the band stated: “We love taking unlikely people, and putting them on unlikely beats while making the whole thing feel very organically like its own vibe. Jazzy voiced wavy chords, 808s, eerie strings, Afro-Brazillian rhythms; with Juicy J, Chip, and Marbl going crazy but sitting in a hypnotic pocket that feels driving and timeless.”

“Original Classic” arrives on the heels of the Original Classic Tour announcement. The 18-day headlining tour, which will feature DJ sets from the group, kicks off on November 17th in Washington D.C. and includes stops in Detroit, Chicago, NYC and more. Tickets on sale here.

Keys N Krates most recent full-length release, 2019’s A Beat Tape For Your Friends, included the original version of “Double Dutch,” and was coined the “beat tape of the summer” by Exclaim! upon its release. In 2020, KNK released an edit package they made of Frank Ocean, Lauryn Hill, and Snoh Aalegra to support the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.
