Paul Kalkbrenner samples Jefferson Airplane with new single ‘Feed Your Head’
Paul Kalkbrenner was afforded a rare opportunity on his new album 7: the chance to explore the master vaults of Sony and Columbia and choose a few records to sample. One of the songs he decided upon was Jefferson Airplane’s psychedelic single, “White Rabbit.” Taking the vocals from the iconic counter-culture hit, Kalkbrenner works a brilliant instrumental underneath. Titled “Feed Your Head,” the track stays true to the Berlin legend’s venerated minimalist history, utilizing a stripped-back drum kit and an uplifting string arrangement for a truly celebratory production.
7 will be released on Columbia Records on August 7. Paul Kalkbrenner has also announced his only US performance thus far in Brooklyn on August 15 at a secret warehouse location.
