Forays into children’s literature aside, Danny Brown has been fairly quiet since his 2013 album ‘Old’. But yesterday he announced that he’s signed a new record deal with Warp and then released the first single under that partnership, ‘When It Rain’.

“With the blessing of my Fools Gold family by my side, I’m excited to be working with Warp on new material”, says Brown. “They’re music fans to the same high degree I am and I’m looking forward to breaking some rules together”.

‘When It Rain’ is a kick-the-doors-off kind of return, hyperactive and dark, with producer Paul White’s beat dragged along by Brown’s relentless vocal. The rapper will be revealing more about his new album on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show tonight at 6pm. Watch the video for ‘When It Rain’ here now:
