Fred again.. is, well, at it again.

The groundbreaking music producer and DJ has announced the third installment of his Actual Life trilogy, Actual Life 3 (January 1 - September 9 2022), and dropped a single to hold fans over before the album's official release, October 28th.

The single, "Danielle (smile on my face)," samples 070 Shake's "Nice To Have," one of the most popular tracks in the famed artist's discography. It features snappy percussive elements and a pulsing bassline, which frenetically flutters like a fish out of water and pairs with haunting sound design for a deeply visceral record.
