With his eagerly-awaited new album 'EMBRACE CHAOS' out on the 19th April via Simone Records, French polymath ALIAS continues the support for his latest LP with the genre-bending new single 'EMPTY HEAD'.

Teaming up with KROY and Cadence Weapon for the new release, 'EMPTY HEAD' continues that broad and immersive aesthetic he has become synonymous with in recent years. With its dark and progressive production channelling a thunderous atmosphere from start to finish, this new record is already feeling like one of the more distinctive releases for the year ahead.

Adding about “EMPTY HEAD”, he said, "My intention when I created this song was to blend fuzz into hip-hop elements. I had this idea to mix a fuzzy bass with a drum machine and use all the broken cymbals I had and placed them on the floor to create this noisy percussion on the beat. The first 8 bars I recorded really made me want to have Cadence Weapon featured on this track. Kroy and I worked on a few projects together before and I needed to have her unique darkness into the song…EMPTY HEAD is about all the weird and bad sides of ourselves that, in a strange way, we embrace."
