Chance The Rapper releases new song ‘Angels’ and performs live on ‘The Late Show’ – watch

Rapper recently hinted that he is working on a third mixtape

Chance The Rapper has revealed new song ‘Angels’ and performed it live for the first time.

‘Angels’ can be streamed below alongside Chance’s performance of the track on last night’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. During his Colbert appearance, the host told him off for telling the press about their rumoured collaboration.

As reported, Chance recently told Hot 97: “Me and Stephen Colbert have been working on a song together, and it’s gonna be released very soon. He’s amazing. I can’t get that deep into it, but he’s amazing.”

Chance also recently hinted at a third Chance The Rapper mixtape, which would follow 2012’s ‘#10Day’ and the 2013 breakthrough ‘Acid Rap’.

‘Angels’ is available to download for free on iTunes and is the latest release from the artist so far in 2015. ‘Surf’, a jazz fusion album that saw Chance collaborate with Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment, was released in May. In August he posted ‘Free (Based Freestyles Mixtape)’, a joint mixtape with Lil B, as well as the song ‘Israel (Sparring)’ featuring Noname Gypsy.

Chance was also invited to give a guest lecture at Harvard University’s Hiphop Archive & Research Institute in April, and the artist took the opportunity to sit down for a Q&A, fielding questions on the current protests in Baltimore, streaming services like the recently launched Tidal, misogyny in hip-hop, and working with Kanye West, among other topics.
