Armand Hammer has shared “Woke Up And Asked Siri How I’m Gonna Die,” produced by JPEGMAFIA, the track follows their lead single “Trauma Mic,” which features Pink Siifu and is produced by DJ Haram. The duo’s new album We Buy Diabetic Test Strips, drops on September 29th via Fat Possum Records. The single is accompanied by a new video directed by Joseph.

On the process of the collaboration with JPEGMAFIA and how the new single fits into the album as a whole, billy woods writes: “I think that every project I worked on, you are kinda waiting to make your first track that is more than the sum of its parts. Because some tracks have a dope verse and a really good beat and a great hook, and the song is really dope and that’s cool. That’s a win, for sure, but there are other songs out there. The ones where all the parts swirl in a unique orbit, building upon each other and all of a sudden the whole thing is floating. Alchemy. Base metals turn to gold, etc. That’s really the moment I’m always waiting for when I start on a new creative journey. That unmistakable signpost. On We Buy Diabetic Test Strips, there were more than a few such moments, but this was the very first one. One take and it was like, yeah that’s it.”

From the desk of Armand Hammer:

We Buy Diabetic Test Strips is a Midsummer’s night in Brooklyn, the stage busy with Gods old, new, and unborn, the orchestra pit thick with weed smoke. Memories, true and false, tangle like wires. Afrofuturists rewind analog answering machines. Brownstones line empty streets on quiet nights where even outside the Men’s Shelter, they pass cigarettes in silence. Street sweepers rattle the morning, broken hovercrafts sent from the past to do nothing at all. People move out of the building in the morning and move back in at dusk, excited to get settled in their old place. Dropped calls fall into the ether, the cracked mirror in your pocket is past warranty but not to worry, they have already mailed you a replacement.
