We still know basically nothing about Drake’s new album Views From The 6 beyond the promise that it’s coming in April. But we do have two new Drake tracks today via Noisey, and they’re extremely fascinating whether or not they make it on the record.
There’s a Popcaan collaboration called “Controlla,” which is basically classic Drake with a Caribbean flair. Perhaps he’s riding the wave of “Work,” his six-week #1 hit with Rihanna? More importantly, he covered motherfucking “These Days” — yes, the mournful Jackson Browne all-timer introduced to my generation when Wes Anderson put Nico’s version in The Royal Tenenbaums. The song’s wistful lyrical content is a perfect match for Drake, and even if this is one of the least essential versions of “These Days” out there, it’s still amazing that it exists at all.
