Exclusive: Wyclef Jean samples planet Jupiter in uplifting new song ‘Borrowed Time’

By September 7, 2017 No Comments

For his latest single, Wyclef Jean literally looked to the stars.

Producing Borrowed Time, premiering exclusively on usatoday.com, the rapper used sounds recorded by the Juno spacecraft, which has been orbiting Jupiter since last year. It’s part of a collaboration between NASA and Apple Music, which have partnered with a handful of artists including Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to provide sounds from Juno to incorporate into their music.

“I was interested to hear what was coming from Jupiter,” says Jean, 47. “What I heard was a collage of vibrations that sounded to me like a piano. I heard low tones, mid-range, high tones — it almost sounded like a new patch of sonics that have not been revealed yet to the public.”
