XL Recordings‘ founder Richard Russell has announced a new EP from his collaborative artist project Everything is Recorded. This news comes a mere five months after the release of the group’s debut full length Everything is Recorded by Richard Russell (our staff writer/editor David had kind words to say about the album here). The new EP, titled 8 AM, will have six tracks and plenty of guest features. This will also be a vinyl-only, limited pressing release.
8 AM Track List:
1. 8AM [ft. Infinite Coles and Mela Murder]
2. Carry Me [ft. Obongjayar and Yazz Ahmed]
3. Computer Love [ft. Ibeyi and Sampha]
4. The Ride [ft. Scritti Politti]
5. Flowerdew [ft. Infinite Coles and Mela Murder]
6. All These Words (A Close But Not Quite Reprise) [ft. Sampha]
With an R&B/Trip-hop vibe, the first single “Carry Me” shows promise for the EP. The vocals are soulful yet mellow, and the music is a perfect example of the smooth and polished orchestrations that only veteran producers can create.
