Willow Smith performs on Oct. 3, 2015 in New York City.

In one of the more unusual collaborations in recent memory, Willow Smith has shared a new track called "twentyfortyeight 2.0," which credits Superbad star Michael Cera as the producer.

The song incorporates dreamy ambiance that dances along with backing sung harmonies, clocking in at under two minutes. Smith delivers spoken-word verses that touch upon self-discovery and the ills of a manufactured society.

Smith has been gradually uploading new tunes to her SoundCloud the past few months, following the surprise rollout of her debut album ARDIPITHECUS this past December.

This marks the first time the two have worked together, and earlier this month, Smith might of hinted at the collab when she tweeted "Michael Cera is extremely beautiful" and "Youth in Revolt," the title of a 2009 film Cera stared in. But Cera has dabbled in music before, dating back to his own surprise album he dropped in 2014.
