Published Aug 05, 2015Ever-busy Faith No More frontman Mike Patton may be on the comeback trail this year with the rest of that long-running outfit, but he's also premiering a long-in-the-works project this fall. Uniting the prolific performer with TV on the Radio singer Tunde Adebimpe and rapper Doseone, the group are called Nevermen.
A press release notes that the trio have prepped a self-titled LP that will be released through Patton's own Ipecac Records imprint in October. The trio have apparently been putting work into the 10-song set for years. Adebimpe and Anticon rapper Doseone began collaborating in 2008 out in Brooklyn, and soon tapped Patton to contribute to the recordings. Word of the collaboration leaked around 2009.
"I really want it to be a true composite of what we all do best," Doesone revealed at the time. "Completely succinct, continuous, cool rhyming poems with everyone's voices and melody talents."
Though the full tracklisting details have yet to be delivered, Nevermen have just offered up a stream of the collection's "Tough Towns." The track features various ambient vocals and pass-the-mic melodies, and a mix of hip-hop grooves and chill synth sounds.
