Nicolas Jaar releases new track ‘Coin in Nine Hands’

The producer is following up his 2016 album Sirens with a deluxe edition featuring three unreleased tracks

Nicolas Jaar has shared a new song, “Coin in Nine Hands”, from a deluxe edition of his 2016 album Sirens.

Written in the summer of 2015, “Coin in Nine Hands” twists and turns over its eight-minute running time. The track starts with a slow rhythm, deep propulsive bassline, and disembodied spoken word vocal: “Last night in a city near the persian gulf / The heat soared to 163 / The heat soared to 163 / It’s already considered to be / One of the hottest places on earth.” It then slowly transforms into, respectively, a NIN-style industrial stomper, underwater funk song, and leftfield ambient track. 

The extended version of Sirens is out Friday and, besides “Coin in Nine Hands”, features an additional two extra tracks.
