Clipping and Cam & China Pay Homage to Slasher Classics on "'96 Neve Campbell"
The track appears on 'Visions of Bodies Being Burned'
Published Sep 24, 2020Clipping have shared a new single from their forthcoming record, Visions of Bodies Being Burned. The experimental hip-hop trio have teamed up with Cam & China for their new single, "'96 Neve Campbell," an ode to the iconic slasher genre "final girl," herself.
The track arrives alongside a lyric video directed by Clipping's Jonathan Snipes and the group's longtime collaborator Cristina Bercovitz. For Cam & China's contribution, they "prove they do more than survive the masked killer" and "preemptive-strike his ass" on their verses.
"We've been fans of theirs for a long time, going back to the days when they were in the group Pink Dollaz," Clipping's Daveed Diggs said of the collaborators, "Cam & China continue to be some of the most consistent and under-appreciated lyricists on the West Coast. We've been trying to do a song with them for a while now, and this one felt like a perfect fit. They bodied it."
Visions of Bodies Being Burned will arrive through Sub Pop on October 23. The record marks the group's follow-up to 2019's There Existed an Addiction to Blood.
Meanwhile, the titular Campbell recently revealed her plans to reprise her role as Sydney Prescott in the upcoming fifth instalment of the long-running Scream franchise. A timely new single indeed!
