Chance the Rapper is keeping active, to say the least. Fresh off a critically-acclaimed mixtape and tour, the Chicago spitter is sharing a brand new song. Of course, being the unpredictable character that he is, Chance’s new song has a bit of a backstory. Last week, Chance praised one Stephen Colbert — yes, the talk show host — for his exceptional musical chops (calling him ”amazing”, in the process), and sharing little else about a ”secret song” between the two. And after his performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night (you may watch the performance here), Chance is wasting no time in sharing the new track. In addition to featuring Saba on the mic, ”Angels” is written and performed by Chance, Lido, Peter Cottontale, Nate Fox, and Donnie Trumpet (for The Social Experiment) — sorry, no Stephen Colbert on an MPC here, folks. Check out the new Chance the Rapper track, ”Angels”, after the jump. Also, the track is available for free through iTunes — get it here!
