Before his highly anticipated EP drops tonight, Lil Nas X channels a little Kurt Cobain for his follow-up single to “Old Town Road.”

Titled “Panini,” the song samples Nirvana‘s “In Bloom” and even gives a credit to the late singer-songwriter who died in 1994.

Lil Nas X explained the Cobain credit during an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1. “One of the craziest things about ‘Panini,’ is it introduced me to Nirvana’s album Nevermind,” he said. “It’s like I always seen the cover but I never actually listened to it. And people was like, ‘Wow, he sampled Nirvana.’ I was like, no. It’s like, I didn’t realize I was using almost the exact same melody.”

It’s not the first time Lil Nas X flipped 1990s rock. After all, “Old Town Road” samples Nine Inch Nails. Hear “Panini” below.
