What's New(s)?

Flying Lotus drops outtakes comp
It's the season of giving and it seems electronic-producer Flying Lotus is finally getting in on the festivities. Taking to Twitter this morning, FlyLo announced he'd be dropping a ZIP File. That file is out now, in the form of an outtakes mix entitled Ideas+drafts+loops. Featuring 24 tracks, the mix incorporates collaborations with: Earl Sweatshirt, MF Doom, Shabazz Palaces, Captain Murphy, The Underachievers, Baths, and more. Also included is a remix of Kanye West's bracing Yeezus cut "Black Skinhead", which includes an appearance by frequent partner-in-crime Thundercat. 

"Some be like "aww flylo why don't u make stuff like ur old stuff'..thats what this moment is for," the producer wrote in speaking to his motivations for the release. You can download the release here, and if you're one of those people who prefers the "old stuff" enjoy the blissful 2010 cut "Mmmhmm" featuring the aforementioned Thundercat. 


"Lost" Johnny Cash album out next year

This coming March, an album of "lost" Johnny Cash recordings will be released through Columbia/Legacy. Entitled Out Among the Stars, the LP features 12 tracks discovered by Cash's song John Carter Cash in 2012. Among the work included here are two duets with wife June Carter Cash and an additional duet with fellow Highwaymen Waylon Jennings. Additionally, the album includes two self-penned Cash tracks entitled "Call Your Mother" and "I Came To Believe". 

Produced by frequent Tammy Wynette and George Jones Billy Sherrill, Out Among the Stars was recorded between 1981 and 1984 at Nashville's Columbia Studios and 1111 Sound Studios. The restorative efforts were undertaken by John Carter Cash, along with co-producer Steve Berkowitz, and Cash collaborators like Marty Stuart. Out Among the Stars is available for pre-order here, and while you wait for the release date to arrive, enjoy a clip of Cash performing the iconic "Folsom Prison Blues".
