DOOM hasn't released a solo album since 2009's Born Like This and Jay Electronica might never release his full-length debut—this July marks 10 years since the Roc Nation emcee released Act I: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge)—but later this year, the two rap veterans will unleash a collaborative single as a part of the Adult Swim Singles Program.
On Wednesday (May 31), Jason DeMarco, the VP and Creative Director for Adult Swim, tweeted a list of 2017 program participants, which, in addition to DOOM and Jay Elect, includes Father, Jonwayne, Knxwledge, Thundercat, Waka Flocka, Your Old Droog and more.
During a performance at SXSW in 2016, DOOM teased a collaborative record with Jay entitled "Light Years," but according to DeMarco, their Adult Swim single contribution is a "brand new jam."
In 2016, the Adult Swim Singles Program ran for 31 weeks, but DeMarco toldThe Verge that this year, they plan to extend the series to 52 weeks. Why? “Just to see if we could,” said DeMarco.
