Shortly after releasing his perplexing new Moby collaboration “ASAP Forever,”A$AP Rocky dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform it, along with a wild-sounding new song called “Distorted Records.” He did a medley of the two tracks, which soundtracked a surreal performance where he seemed to be in some kind of nuclear lab, or something. I dunno, I’m less of a “scientist” and more of a “music writer,” so a lot of it went over my head, but basically he performed the beginning of “ASAP Forever” asleep on a vertical bed in some kind of quarantine room, before waking up and performing “Distorted Records” for an audience of two scientists with gas masks on. It was pretty cool! The song itself sounds abrasive as hell, which is a pretty distinct change from the fairly chill “ASAP Forever.” Watch the highly conceptual performance above.
