Kris Wadsworth Digs into 'Life and Death' on Debut Album
Published Nov 01, 2012Though he's been releasing music since 2005, Detroit-based house phenom Kris Wadsworth has, until now, avoided releasing a full-length album. That will change next month, however, as the artist has revealed plans to issue his debut long-player.
The album is called Life and Death, a title that Wadsworth explained in a statement to Resident Advisor. "Music is my career, so it is Life and Death to a certain extent," he said. "But also, there are too many uptight people in this industry that take themselves too seriously. [The album is] me: Serious music which also makes fun of the world around me."
He's right, too — it's hard to take this album too seriously with song titles like "Gutter Pimp," "The Boring People" and our personal favourite "Famous Anus."
The track "Ivory 313" features a guest appearance from fellow Detroit electro whiz Jimmy Edgar.
Life and Death will be available on November 30 via Get Physical.
