    I was just wondering lately if anyone noticed this very similar beat that Guilty Party and Sleep Well Beast both seem to have. I was just curious if this has been done for a reason as it may be some kind of a connection between these two or just simply they like the beat that much that they used it in both songs as it works very well for both of them. Funnily enough, both songs are my personal favorite off the record and it’s not because of the beat 🙂

    Guilty Party is a just stunning, heartbreak over that beat, gets me everytime. ‘I miss it every summer’ wow.

    This article on The Atlantic made mention that a sketch called “Black Barn” eventually split into the two songs “Guilty Party” and “Sleep Well Beast”. A long but fun read.
