Jake&Papa aren’t looking to go “Back to the Future” on their new track featuring rapper Quincey White.
On the melodramatic track, produced by Isaac Hayes, the duo put their best foot forward as they look to move on from a dissolved relationship. Quincey White adds a blazing verse, citing “once I love, I love hard.”
Jake&Papa explained the inspiration behind their new track. “‘Back to the Future’ is an ode to a classic movie and a figurative high-step over the classic I-want-that-old-thing-back maneuver,” the said in a statement. “The future that we once built is now the past, but we can’t go back there.”
“Back to the Future” is the first recording we’ve heard from Jake&Papa since their 2017 EP Tattoos&Blues, which included their lead single “Phones.”
