Jamie xx and Young Thug team up for this In Colour track, following the release of “Gosh” and “Loud Places”. Jamie xx hasn’t delved into rap often, with the use of his reworking of Gil Scott-Heron’s “I’ll Take Care of You” on Drake’s “Take Care” being the most prominent occurrence. “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” is as optimistic as its title implies, and Young Thug is as fantastic as he’s ever been. He rides high above the glistening, tropical beat, giving the song a shot of adrenaline. The album version features reggae artist Popcaan, but even with Young Thug only, it’s readily apparent that good times are on the way.
Listen at Indie Shuffle.
In Colour is out June 2 via Young Turks.
