Kaytranada has put out a video game before the release of his XL debut ‘99.9%’, with players that get a high score winning a bonus track from the album, entitled ‘Nobody Beats the Kay’.
‘99.9%: The Game’ challenges Kaytranada fans to guide an airplane to collect coins and other prizes whilst avoiding hazards like palm trees, lightning and the sea. It’s all set to an arcade-classic style soundtrack and any player that makes it to 100 points unlocks the bonus LP track.
‘99.9%’ lands next month and so far Kay has shared two cuts from it, ‘Bus Ride’ (featuring Karriem Riggins) and ‘Glowed Up’ (featuring Anderson. Paak.) You can listen to the latter below.
The album will also feature appearances from Craig David, Little Dragon and The Internet’s Syd tha Kid.
