There have been several interesting collaborative tracks released today. Kendrick Lamar and Pusha T's 'Nosetalgia' was peculiar because, just a few weeks ago, Kendrick lyrically killed Pusha in Big Sean's 'Control.' And 'Dark Horse,' the new Katy Perry song featuring rapper Juicy J, came from the left field located way behind left field's left field.

Now we have a remix of 'Life Round Here,' one of the finest tracks from UK musician James Blake's lastest album, 'Overgrown,' featuring young Chicago rapper Chance The Rapper. Apparently Blake was impressed by one of Chance's sets at that Austin music festival earlier this year, and so Blake asked him to jump on the track, for which there is also a video in the works.

Chance The Rapper is currently touring Europe with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Blake is also in the middle of a European tour, but he will touchdown in the US in mid-October for San Francisco's Treasure Island Music Festival, and then stick around until late-November for several North American dates. Maybe he will even end up sharing a stage with Chance while he's here.
