Listen to the song below.
Back in June, DJ Frank Delgado talked about the origins of Black Stallion during the band’s global press conference saying:
“We would talk about our new record, how good it was going to be and we’d immediately jump to, ‘It’s going to be so good, we’re going to have [DJ] Shadow remix it and we’ll call it Black Stallion.’ I think one time we actually hit him up. He was playing here in town and I was opening DJing and me and Chino kind of cornered him.
“We were like, ‘Hey man, we’re the Deftones,’ and he looked at us like we were fucking crazy. We were like, ‘We want you remix our record,’ and he was like, ‘Deftones? Are you guys ska?’ But he was like, ‘Well, send it to me,’ kind of like trying to get rid of us and we were like, ‘Well, we haven’t actually recorded it yet.’ It was kind of batshit crazy of us.”
