Ex-Rare developer and talented composer Grant Kirkhope is taking on the upcoming Yooka-Laylee as his next musical challenge.

Kirkhope is well-known for his musical stylings found in the “D.K. Rap,” which was heard at the beginning of 1999’s Donkey Kong 64. A video posted by the Yooka-Laylee developers consists of Kirkhope teasing that his work on the upcoming spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie includes a new sick beat, although he doesn’t sell it very well.

The video’s description reveals that the new song will drop tomorrow, April 1st, at 7 a.m. PT. Fans should be wary, however, as this date puts the release on April Fools’ Day, when everyone should be skeptical of everything on the internet.

Yooka-Laylee launches April 11th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and fans can check out the game’s multiplayer reveal in the latest trailer.

Nick didn’t start gaming until mid-2006. Once his parents finally allowed a console into the house, it was all uphill from there. Starting out with a PS2, he grew an affinity for Sony consoles and moved on to the PS3, and now the PS4. He keeps his gaming palette wide, but, gun to his head, he’d have to say shooters are his genre of choice. Find him on Twitter @idole808
