The Couch Sessions spoke with Dan Black in a Q&A, asking the London based artist about his collaboration with Kid Cudi on the ‘Symphonies’ and how it all came about. Black said:
Yeah, he did a great job. And it was through a mutual friend who played him some of my stuff. It was really quick but he just connected to it, he really liked ‘Symphonies’ in particular, so he asked our friend if I could send him the instrumental. It was really modern; I emailed it to him and two days later he emailed it back to me with the stuff he recorded. I loved it and from there it was done; it was really quick, simple and… super fortuitous.
