Hi, hey, and hello, ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbit’s one stop shop for all of the latest and greatest news to hit the world of popular and independent music. Today, like any day, is a great day for music news. So let’s hesitate no longer and jump right in.
James Blake, fresh off of this week’s release of his excellent sophomore LP Overgrown, has come out with a video for the title track and first single of the album. The video’s director, Nabil Frederickson is a famous music video director who has also created videos for Kanye West, among others. Apparently he crafted a truly beautiful piece of art for James Blake’s track. If you would like to check it out, you can follow the link back to Pitchfork Music.
Usually when you hear something about Kid Cudi and a release date for an upcoming record, it is about a long and painful delay. But it seems that Kid Cudi has gotten his act together in a pretty serious way. He has in fact decided to move up the release date of his new record, Indicud, up to April 16th. That date is very quickly coming up! If you would like to read the whole story, you can follow the link back to 2dopeboyz.
The Southern rap sensation Big K.R.I.T. has taken some time off between big budget studio albums and supporting tours and has released a new mixtape!
