Stereo MCs Return This Summer
Stereo MCs return this Summer with a brand new LP ‘Paradise’ set for release in August on their new Graffiti Recordings imprint. Marrying some adventurous hip hop styles to their signature funk, the record is set to make this summer throb to the sound of the Stereos.
Next month, however, marks their first commercially available material since 2001 with “Warhead” & “First Love” available exclusively through iTunes on May 16th, and then given a full online and highly limited and beautifully packaged 12” release a fortnight later on May 30th. Reflecting the diversity and experimentation that marks the album out as a big progression for the band, the two tracks will appeal to each end of the hip hop spectrum and beyond, as well as providing a teaser for what will be one of the albums of the year.
The band said of the new material; "This record represents a new surge of energy for us, in that we're making music as we feel it again, with much collaboration, reflection and interaction, culminating in our new label Graffiti Recordings, and our 5th album "Paradise". We've made a record in our own backyard, homegrown, and without relying on the mainstream - we're really excited to be setting all this off in 2005.”
With festival appearances and gigs lined up for the summer, the chance to catch one of the truly great live bands of the last 15 years is within reach...
