Listen & Download: Dave Sitek & Tinashe’s Hypnotic “Xylaphone”



TV On The Radio ‘s Dave Sitek has teamed up with rising R&B star Tinashe for a sensual new track titled “Xylophone.”

Presented as part of the third installment Dr. Pepper ‘s “One of a Kind Studio Sessions,” the song appears on Dave’s At Any Cost EP, which also features Rockie Fresh, Robert DeLong and RAC .

“One of a Kind Studio Sessions” lets two artists who have never met come together to create a tune during their first meeting.

“I definitely have to get acquainted with working with people because before when I was making my music I was making it all on my own,” Tinashe told SPIN .

“It’s been a learning process, learning how to incorporate other people’s artistic opinions and what I am doing. Its very fun, especially when you’re working with awesome creative people that you respect, it’s cool to hear what they think and to get their input. I’m looking forward to working with new people I haven’t worked with before. Getting acquainted with them and creating something from nothing.”

She also collaborated with Chicago-based production duo The Hood Internet for another track, titled “One Step Over,” from their “One of a Kind Studio Sessions” EP, Out of the Ordinary .

The 21-year-old L.A.-based singer-songwriter/dancer is currently moving up the charts with her hit single “2 On,” featuring Cali rapper Schoolboy Q , which has ascended to#25 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on Rhythmic Songs this week.

The song will appear on her studio debut, Aquarius , which is set to be released in September via RCA Records.

The album follows three self-released EPs: 2012’s In Case We Die and Reverie , and 2013’s Black Water .
