Release[edit | edit source]

"Freeee (Ghost Town, Pt. 2)" was released on June 8, 2018 as the fourth track on Kids See Ghosts.[1] On the day of its release, multiple tracks were mislabeled on streaming services, except for "Freeee", which was the only track not to be mislabeled.[4][5]

Reception[edit | edit source]

The song has received general acclaim from music critics. Jack Hamilton of Slate called the song "[Kids See Ghosts]' most fun and exuberant track", and comparing its sound to English musician David Bowie, with its "booming walls of vocals, gnashing distortion, and thundering drums."[6] Spencer Kornhaber of The Atlantic further praised the song, calling it and its predecessor "Ghost Town" as the standout tracks of their respective albums.[7]

Samples[edit | edit source]

The song begins with an excerpt from a speech by black nationalist Marcus Garvey. It reads:[2][3]

"May I say something to you to give you a true knowledge of yourself and life
Man in the full knowledge of himself is a superb and supreme creature of creation
When man becomes possessor of the knowledge of himself, he becomes the master of his environment."

The song also contains a sample of the song "Stark", written and performed by Corin "Mr. Chop" Littler.[2][3]
