Tune in and turn up

Courtesy of NPR, fans of Ghostface Killah now have the opportunity to stream in its entirety his latest project that sees him paired with instrumentalist Adrian Younge. According to a press release, the album will be released via Soul Temple Records and is described as a mix of “classic 36 Chambers-era RZA with Portishead, and the Italian film music of Ennio Morricone.” Twelve Reasons to Die drops April 16 and can be pre-ordered here for $8 USD while a snapshot of what to expect from the album courtesy of NPR can be read below.

“The mood of the album is fragile, and the whole project is a definite risk. Both Ghostface and Younge are making fictional music here, but the knife’s edge they’re walking — between theater and theatrics, between noir and B-movie — feels very real. That they make it across without falling is a relief and an eye-opener.”
