It feels like only yesterday Chance The Rapper unleashed his GRAMMY-award winning "mixtape," Coloring Book, on the world, but as of last week, it's been 15 months since the project's release.

On Tuesday (August 22), Chano took to Instagram to preview a snippet of a brand new record, which samples Soul For Real's classic '90s jam, "Every Little Thing I Do."

Have a listen...

In addition to sampling "Every Little Thing I Do," which itself samples The Gap Band's "Outstanding," the untitled song also heavily employees the talk box, a vocal effect that allows for the modification of a vocal by reshaping the audio frequency. Roger Troutman, the lead singer of the R&B group Zapp, popularized the use of the talk box in 1980 when the group released their first single, "More Bounce to the Ounce." It was also famously used on the Tupac classic, "California Love."

Chance has yet to reveal any details about his next full-length album, which we already know will be his formal "debut album," but fans should expect a more mature emcee. Recently, the Chicago native discussed how having a daughter has completed changed his approach to making music.
