After getting Kendrick Lamar's "LUST" stuck in my head, I found myself humming the hook to Andre 3000's "She Lives in my Lap" alongside it. I thought it could be cold to cover this live. This turned into re-producing, adding keys, writing and re-recording a cover/mash-up that just turned into it's own thing, so here we are with "Mermaid". This song is also a prelude to my next full-length album (my first official since 2007's "The World is Ours") to be released this Fall.
