COLLABORATION WITH CHANCE THE RAPPER ON “ROO” FOR HIS NEW ALBUM THE BIG DAY
Today, Sierra and Bianca Casady, the sister duo who perform as CocoRosie, return with a new collaboration with Chance The Rapper. The track “Roo” is co-written, produced and performed by CocoRosie, as part of Chance The Rapper’s new album The Big Day.
CocoRosie is the music-based project of American cross-disciplinary performance artists Sierra and Bianca Casady. Their songs blend a myriad of styles and references from hip-hop to folk and opera with a focus on beat programming and production using found objects, children’s toys and other unique percussion to create a particular atmosphere of nostalgia and mystery. Taken as a whole, CocoRosie’s music is an ongoing psychologically intimate dialogue between the siblings. Each sister has multiple personae and vocal styles; Bianca delivers troubadourian-style-rap while Sierra often responds with ethereal tones while accompanying their voices on harp, piano, or guitar.
In their sixteen years as CocoRosie, the sisters Sierra and Bianca Casady have released six albums: Heartache City (2015), Tales of A Grass Widow (2013), Grey Oceans (2010), The Adventures of Ghosthorse and Stillborn (2007), Noah's Ark (2005), and their first album, La Maison de Mon Reve (2004)

smoke 'em out
Today, we share a new song to inspire the weary-disappointed hearts of so many crest-fallen citizens. We just started working on a new album, but “Smoke ‘em Out” begged to be turned loose on the world now, as a means of participation during these turbulent yet invigorating times.
Joined on guest vocals by our fellow Future Feminist ANOHNI, “Smoke ‘em Out” welcomes the new character who will be occupying the White House with a mob of women and children armed with forks and knives. In the wake of this un-natural disaster, we feel a call to rise, shout, and burn the house down.
