It's taken from his forthcoming mixtape...

North London newcomer Col3trane has shared new song 'Penelope'.

The rising artist caught attention after sparring with SG Lewis on last year's stunner 'Smart Aleck Kill'.

Working on his own mixtape, Col3trane recently went into the studio for sessions with collaborator Lauren Ralph.

New cut 'Penelope' emerges from those sessions, with Col3trane claiming the influence of Homer's Odyssey, a central text in Greek mythology.

Sonically, it's a laid back jammer that channels everyone from Frank Ocean to Dilla in its slumped beat meets R&B fixation.

There's a defiantly UK slant in there, too, a willingness to express something familiar yet ultimately highly distinct.
