Romare has released details of his debut full-length, Projections

Romare has released details of his debut full-length, Projections. The London producer will release his debut album through Ninja Tune in February. Projections will be released on CD, digital and as a double-pack LP. Watch the album trailer below.

Taking name and influence from Romare Bearden, the well-known collagist whose work centered on black America, London-born producer Archie Fairhurst burst onto the scene in 2012 with Meditations On Afrocentrism, an EP that outlined his fascination with African-American culture and its traditions. Coming out on Ninja Tune, the forthcoming album furthers his exploration into the field, while re-imagining “the profound cultural impact of the collage technique for a new generation of music listeners.”

In an interview with Nicolas Jaar, reporting for The FADER, Andre 3000 shared his thoughts on Outkast’s 2014 Reunion Tour:

“Honestly, just, you know—I didn’t wanna do the tour. We hadn’t performed in 10 years. It was old songs,” he said. “I’m like, How am I gonna present these songs? I don’t have nothing new to say. So I was like, maybe I can start saying new stuff while doing these old songs. It became a theme where I was more excited about this than the actual show. This is fun, running out in these.”
