RZA teases a Western-inspired single off his upcoming “Bobby Digital and The Pit of Snakes”
RZA’s already dropped one single off the project, “We Push,” and now he’s given us the opening track, “Under The Sun.” RZA has described Pit of Snakes as a “soundtrack” to the forthcoming graphic novel, and “Under The Sun” certainly fits that description. The instrumental is evocative of an Ennio Morricone Western score, made up of a lonesome picked guitar and sparse bongo percussion which open up into an expansive and operatic chorus. RZA’s lyrics are similarly cinematic, detailing his character’s long journey. “He traveled across waters many oceans, rivers, and lakes, slept in the desert amongst the pit full of snakes,” he begins.
Check out the song, along with its graphic novel-inspired visuals, below.
Bend air like the air bender
Pull strings like on rare fenders
Laying in beds, made of Egyptian silk and rare timber
Horses in the stable, exotic sources on his table
Voice blasting through it on the air waves, face gracing on the cable
