While Chance The Rapper's coming-of-age raps don't dwell on his youth, his latest release surely draws from his adolescence.

Having covered the theme song of the children’s animated series “Arthur” throughout the summer, the 21-year-old MC has now released an official recording online.

The track, titled “Wonderful Everyday,” utilizes a notable crew, including Jessie Ware, Wyclef Jean, Donnie Trumpet, Elle Varner, Eryn Allen Kane, Francis & The Lights, The O'my's and Peter Cottontale.

The piano-lead tune sounds practically gospel in its beginning and gathers accompanying voices, periodic symbol splashes and rhythmic stomping along the way.

It echoes a majority of the lyrics of the PBS Kids series, which has been airing since 1996. Chance The Rapper dives off into his own original outro as the song concludes.

The release adds to the sprouting hype for the rapper's appearance at Lollapalooza on Sunday in his hometown of Chicago.
