Today, CASISDEAD announces details of his highly-anticipated debut studio album, Famous Last Words, releasing on 27th October via XL Recordings. The announcement comes alongside new single “Matte Grey Wrap”.
The twenty three track album is the London-based rapper, producer and director’s most ambitious statement yet.
The album features a carefully curated roll call of collaborators including Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant, Connie Constance, Kamio and Desire. The vocalists are immersed in CASISDEAD’s hallmark 80’s-inspired synthpop soundscapes, aided and abetted by a production cast that includes Stranger Things composer Kyle Dixon and producer, composer and Italians Do It Better label founder Johnny Jewel. Meanwhile, actors Ed Skrein and Emma Rigby’s narrative weaves through the record, amplifying the widescreen, cinematic experience.
The album will be available on a host of formats including standard black LP, limited edition clear LP, stamped white label, CD, and cassette alongside exclusive CASISDEAD merchandise available at casisdead.com.
The album can also be bundled with tickets to CASISDEAD’s freshly announced headline show at London’s Koko. Taking place on 2nd November, it’s his biggest headline show to date.
