Souls of Mischief Are Releasing Their First New Album in More Than 5 Years (Artwork & Tracklist)

2013 was a landmark year for Souls of Mischief, as they celebrated the 20th anniversary of their beloved album, ’93 til Infinity. 2014 is shaping up to be another banner year for the group, as they are gearing up to release their first new album in more than 5 years. Spin reports the album, titled There is Only Now, will be produced by Adrian Younge (Jay-Z, Ghostface Killah) and will be released on August 26th. Check out the artwork, tracklist and some excerpts from the Spin article below.


Here are some excerpts from Spin:

“The cinematically blessed 19 tracks are narrated by A Tribe Called Quest member Ali Shaheed Muhammed, who plays the DJ for fictional Oakland radio station K-NOW and unfolds the story through his all-seeing eye. Further features give a deeper sense of what we can expect from the story: Busta Rhymes makes an appearance as the villain, Womack; William Hart of the Delfonics lends his falsetto to “Another Side of You”; Snoop Dogg is tagged for the title track; and Scarub from Living Legends gets into the mix on “Stone Cold.”

What’s more, Souls’ entire sixth LP was evidently recorded without the use of computers. All four members and Younge worked in an Los Angeles studio for months laying tracks down on 2-inch analogue tape with each song recorded in a single take. All instruments were played by Younge or session musicians without drum-sampling or drum machines.”
