Before the well-received albums SYRE and ERYS came into existence, Jaden Smith proved his talent with 2012’s The Cool Cafe: Cool Tape Vol. 1, which also introduced the world to his MSFTS movement. Since then, he’s expanded that project into a series with 2014’s CTV2 and 2018’s The Sunset Tapes: A Cool Tape Story, which — like the aforementioned albums — was released through his partnership with Roc Nation. Now, social media posts have revealed that he’s currently putting the final touches on CTV3: TRIPPY SUMMER.
To get the fans ready for the forthcoming release, Jaden unveils his new single “Cabin Fever,” which is produced by Scottish DJ/producer BURNS and gives off the exact melodic vibe you’d want to hear while laid back on a warm beach — if only outside was truly open right now:
“818, I’m on the way, I’m thinking ‘bout you every day, I think we should spend some time away, stay with me in Heaven every day/
I wanna feel your body on me, tall palm trees and kaleidoscope dreams, I’m at home thinking ‘bout you and me/
’Cause girl, I got that cabin fever, you made me a believer, eating Marshmallow Pies, I can see it in your eyes, girl, you’re speaking and I wanna believe ya.../”
The song also comes with a visualizer that helps to create the mood with vibrant, trippy colors and graphics. Hopefully, an official music video will soon follow.
In related news, Jaden has also been expanding his reach in the fashion world, partnering with New Balance to release vegan leather shoes dubbed the Vision Racers. You’ll can scoop a pair from New Balance’s official website for $150 USD.
In the meantime, press play on “Cabin Fever” below. Given its name, CTV3: TRIPPY SUMMER should be arriving on streaming platforms soon.
