Today Shabazz Palaces have finally properly announced their new album Lese Majesty, coming on July 29 (read more details on Complex.) The first single for it may (or may not) appear on Amazon on May 6th. I’m very very excited for all this, as Black Up is still sitting comfortably in my top 3 albums of the last 5 years.
Here is some music to go with the news. First, a rare loosie taken from a 2010 compilation 4 The Love of Music.
Second, a live version of ‘A Mess, The Booth Soaks In Palacian Musk‘, apparently performed in Shanghai. These guys put on a pretty great live set, especially considering their show is just 2 guys rapping and doing their own percussion. See them if you ever get a chance.
