A posthumous album from the late Tony Allen will arrive later this month to commemorate the one-year anniversary of his death. There Is No End is due out on April 30th through Blue Note records. Over the weekend, they released the first single from the project, “Cosmosis,” a collaboration alongside Skepta and Ben Okri. The song was co-produced by Allen, Damon Albarn, and Remi Kabaka.

“This man could have lived another 150 years and kept creating new worlds,” said Okri in a press statement. “He had become the master shaman of his art. He knew himself and his mind. He wanted the album to be open to the energies of a new generation… but like a great mathematician or scientist who found a code for a new world, with just a few beats, he created this extraordinary canvas.”

Lyrics

[Tony Allen]
Cosmosis

[Verse 1: Ben Okri]
Let’s talk about the science
Of how things break
How the heart breaks
How the age founders, shatters
With no one listening
How the mind quakes
How we lose all that matters
Oh, the music of the bones
Music of siege and white stones

Let’s talk about the art
Of how things break
Things that were hard to make
Things like peace, and love, and need
How the nations shape
How the good is lost to the fake
Oh, brief change by osmosis
Change the music of Cosmosis

[Chorus: Skepta]
Yeah
She was looking for a prince
Oh now she’s hitting the road
She tried kissing a frog
Oh now she’s licking a toad
Spiritual girl, she’s got a story to tell
She taught me to love myself, forget everyone else
Forget and I forgive, I don’t give it attention
How you feel about me?
Uh, Its just a reflection
I’m out of my ego, I’m back into space
Hold me in your arms and feel the connection

[Bridge: Tony Allen]
Cosmosis
Cosmosis
Yeah, man

[Verse 2: Ben Okri]
The present moment began with fire
And still it burns
The present moment began with fire
And still it burns
It began with water
And still it drowns, still they drown
It began with air, see how the bombs fall
On houses made of sand
Dreams made of flesh

[Chorus: Skepta]
She was looking for a prince
Oh now she’s hitting the road
She tried kissing a frog
Oh now she’s licking a toad
Spiritual girl, she’s got a story to tell
She taught me to love myself, forget everyone else
Forget and I forgive, I don’t give it attention
How you feel about me?
Uh, Its just a reflection
I’m out of my ego, I’m back into space
Hold me in your arms and feel the connection

[Outro: Tony Allen]
Yeah
The world’s going to change because Cosmosis
Check it out
When will this story of our nation
Change and shine?
Cosmosis
Cosmosis
