El-P Signs To Fat Possum, Shares New Song


(via Pitchfork)

It's been a while since we heard a proper rap-heavy album from El-P-- his last effort, I'll Sleep When You're Dead, dropped four years ago. (He also released an instrumental beat tape, Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3, last year). That'll change next year, when El-P releases the I'll Sleep When You're Dead follow-up tentatively titled Cancer for Cure on new label home Fat Possum.  As the penultimate installment in their summer singles series, Adult Swim has the first teaser from the new album, "drones over BKLYN (censored mix)", which was co-produced by El-P and Lil Shalimar. Grab it here, and listen below.
