|On October 23rd, Clipping will release their new album Visions of Bodies Being Burned, the follow up to their 2019 horrorcore-inspired album There Existed an Addiction to Blood. Each track on the group’s new album pairs a different expression of horror with one of Clipping’s signature metamorphic takes on a hip-hop subgenre. |
Featuring Michael Esposito, “Pain Everyday” uses real EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) recordings—said to be the voices of restless spirits—atop a cinematic breakcore collage, as a call-to-arms for the ghosts of lynching victims to haunt the white descendants of their murderers.
About the song, lyricist Daveed Diggs says, “This song was one of the most challenging to write because it’s the first time we’ve done a track entirely in ⅞, which, it turns out, is kind of a mind fuck. I love how it came out because it’s in this odd time signature but the flow still feels natural, like rap is supposed to.” You can watch the group’s new lyric video for “Pain Everyday” right here, which was directed by Clipping’s own Jonathan Snipes and longtime collaborator Cristina Bercovitz.
