Starting in April, Chance The Rapper and his band, The Social Experiment, began covering the theme song from Arthur during live performances (watch one here). Tonight, the 21-year-old rising star takes the smile-inducing move to an entirely new level, recruiting Wyclef Jean, Elle Varner, Jessie Ware’s, Francis & The Lights, Eryn Allen Kane, and more to join in on his latest song, “Wonderful Everyday: Arthur.”
Chance let the premiere of the track loose through Lollapalooza’s official website in honor of his upcoming set at the festival this weekend, and minutes later, it’s already sweeping the interwebs. It’s an overwhelmingly feel-good record powered by live instrumentation and a star-studded cast, a true collaborative effort that will surely evoke as strong a feeling of nostalgia as you’ve felt in years. Chance and The Social Experiment are going about everything on their own terms, and at this point, there’s no limit to how far they can take it.
Stream and download “Wonderful Everyday: Arthur” below, and stay tuned for more. Chance’s Lollapalooza set will be streamed live this Sunday night at 8:45 PM (CST), so if that’s something that interests you, save this link.
