Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Jr. - "I Think It's Gonna Rain Today" (PRODUCE, mixtape Vol. 1)




"We were working on samples to make a beat and we ended up sampling the Nina Simone version of Randy Newman's "I Think It's Gonna Rain Today" (1968), Josh Epstein recently told Paste Magazine in an exclusive premier-interview, which contrary to popular belief, dos not in fact sample Super Mario Brothers. Epstein along with fellow Detroit musician Daniel Zott are 2-man Indie-Pop band Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. who just released their second album, The Speed of Things back in October. Simply based off it's attached Souncloud cover artwork, "I Think It's Gonna Rain Today" will seemingly appear on Jr. Jr.'s forthcoming mixtape, PRODUCE, Vol. 1; set to feature a wide array of acclaimed rapper-producers including Murs, Slim of 112, Chuck Inglish, Quelle Chris, Asher Roth, Tunde Olaniran, King Chip, Self Says, Goldenboyz, and more. It'll definitely be pretty interesting to hear what Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.'s Weezer-indebted brand of Indie-Pop will sound like infused with a little added Hip-Hop flair. Further release details on PRODUCE were currently unavailable at press time... But according to a January 18th dual-Tweet directed at rappers @tundeolaniran & @SelfSays, "It's coming before February," which is very soon!!! Meanwhile, their latest GIF breakdown-worthy Claire Marie Vogel-directed video-single, "Run" [below] premiered over at Buzzfeed roughly 2 weeks ago.
