Daniel Dumile, alias DOOM, seems to be a pretty busy man these days. The other week we told you about the new Madvillain album and even let you hear a bit. Before that there was the news of Unexpected Guests, though that was just a compilation of already recorded tracks.
This time it's news about a new EP, due at the end of the year, though details aren't entirely clear about what exactly is going on with it. What we do know is that it's called Gazillion Ear, which is a track on his current LP BORN LIKE THIS..
A press release said:
"Masked maverick DOOM (previously known as MF Doom) is set to release his new GAZZILLION EAR EP this December. The record includes production by Radiohead frontman and longtime DOOM fan Thom Yorke, the much-missed J Dilla, psychedelic hip-hop artist Jneiro Jarel and TV On The Radio lynchpin Dave Sitek. The EP follows DOOM’s earlier BORN LIKE THIS album opus - one of the hip-hop highlights of 2009."
More Radiohead-related news then! The rumour that TVOTR's Sitek was collaborating with DOOM has been around for a while but it's good to see it's actually happening. Likewise that Thom Yorke's getting involved again, after he remixed one of DOOM's tracks earlier in the year. J Dilla, well that's a given.
Listen below to the title track, which may or may not be included on the EP.
