K’naan – “Hurt Me Tomorrow” (Carter Blown Out Cassette Remix) | New Music

You’ll have to grant us a late pass on this one. A little over a fortnight ago, Carter (of Dovecote Records) got his hands on the acapella audio of K’naan‘s new single “Hurt Me Tomorrow”, and devised one heullva musical makeover. Freeing the Somali-Canadian emcee’s vocals from its original uplifting piano melody, Carter channels his inner arrabMUZIK (with a little Clams Casino thrown in for good measure) to make for a retro-yet-forward thinking banger he calls the Blown Out Casette remix.

You can stream Carter’s refix below. K’naan’s original “Hurt Me Tomorrow” serves as the lead single from his upcoming album, Country, God, or the Girl, due out October 3rd.
