Chicago “soul trap” pioneer TREE is back, this time accompanied by producer Thelonius Martin.

Martin was behind Fiend’s glorious ‘California Mornings’ (one of FACT’s favorite songs from last summer), and he adds a jazzy lightness to TREE’s unmistakable throaty drawl. Devoid of the rattling beats TREE tends to spread so liberally over his own productions, Martin allows ‘More Than You Know’ to bathe in the soulful chipmunked vocals, and the result isn’t a million miles from one Kanye West, albeit pre-808s era.

The track was produced in 2012 and has been rescued by the Closed Sessions crew, and if you fancy hearing what TREE’s been up to more recently, we recommend taking a listen to the excellent MCTREEG EP. [via Fake Shore Drive]
