Published Jan 28, 2011Über-hip Brooklyn rapper/producer Theophilus London has built a high profile in the mixtape game, blending elements of indie rock, soul, electro-funk and '80s pop into his highly eclectic songwriting style across three web-only albums. Now, he's following up his 2010 mix I Want You with a proper EP on Warner.
The five-song collection is called Lovers Holiday, and sees the artist team up with Solange Knowles and Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara. The EP also features production from TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek and the Teddybears' Jocke Ahnuld.
Warner will issue the Lovers Holiday EP as an iTunes release on February 8. The music video for "Flying Overseas," which features Solange Knowles, is available below alongside a stream of the Sara Quin collaboration "Why Even Try."
