Ahead of the weekend, emerging hip-hop artist Bryson, the Alien has released his new single "Tour Song," which arrived Thursday.

The Portland, Oregon-based rapper had been teasing the track on social media. He calls the new track an "ode to all the DIY traveling musicians" and the "tumultuous journey of growing one's fan base independently."

"Tour Song" has flares of Childish Gambino's earlier material, while Bryson maintains his flow with the steadiness of another artist whose name includes a comma—Tyler, the Creator.

The track, which should easily fit on your summer soundtrack, is Bryson, the Alien's first off his upcoming BTA Tape EP, which he's planning to release Aug. 1 via his own label Sumalienz.
