(Featuring Skepta)

Halloween is a time when larger than life characters come out to play, so it makes sense that Riff Raff is releasing his new album in time for the spookiest of holidays. Balloween is out on October 25 and includes appearances from Skepta, Quavo, Lil B, and Yung Lean among others plus production from Diplo, Calvin Harris, and Sonny Digital. "Back From The Dead" is the first song from the album and is premiering via The FADER today, October 12. Skepta turns up on his verse, bragging about his Chicken wing swing and imagines brothers blazing at his funeral. Riff Raff, meanwhile, talks about candy-coating his car with a Butterfinger interior. It's brash and fun stuff with Will-A-Fool's gleaming beat bouncing in the background. Speaking to The FADER over email, Riff Raff said: "When we decided to make the best Halloween album ever we had to get the #1 ranked U.K. artist on this song. Skepta 100%."

Song Lyrics:

[Hook: RiFF RAFF]
Back from the dead, back from the dead
Back from the, back from the dead
Back from the dead, back from the dead
Back from the, back from the dead

Yeah, the baby blue coupe looks like baby food
My diamonds jumping out the gem since preschool
You a typewriter, I'm the type to collect titles
Yeah, Versace gingivitis, diamonds on my pacifier
I even as a youth crushed jewels upon my tooth
Throw the car seat out the roof, I hit the state, truce
I finesse the Jaguar, I candy coated my car
I got Butterfinger interior, intercept a miracle

[Hook: RiFF RAFF]
Back from the dead, back from the dead
Back from the, back from the dead
Back from the dead, back from the dead
Back from the, back from the dead

[Skepta]
If I had to take a L
Take it on the chin (mhm)
Lennox Lewis ting (bling)
All I do is win (bling)
Seattle for my bling (ice)
All you hear is 'shing'
Chicken wing swing
When I'm dancing with my ting
You think you're scary?
I'm dead already
My funeral was amazing
It was beautiful (sick)
Doves flying
Brothers blazing in the cubicles (s'matter?)
Fakes crying
Rest in peace
It's so delusional
But I know that's the usual
I'm back from the dead

[Hook: RiFF RAFF]
Back from the dead, back from the dead
Back from the, back from the dead
Back from the dead, back from the dead
Back from the, back from the dead
