Mike Patton, TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe and Doseone Offer Update on 'Nevermen' LP
Published Nov 03, 2015Back in August, Faith No More's Mike Patton, TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe and rapper Doseone revealed that they'd been working on a collaborative album under the name Nevermen. And while the previously suggested October release date has come and gone, the supergroup have offered an update on the forthcoming LP.
The self-titled debut album from Nevermen is now set to arrive on January 29 though Patton's Ipecac imprint and Lex. The album artwork was designed by Keith Tyson and is pictured above.
As previously reported, Doseone and Adebimpe began working on the 10-song set in Brooklyn back in 2008, shortly thereafter hooked up with Patton, and news of the project leaked in 2009.
"I really want it to be a true composite of what we all do best," Doesone said at the time. "Completely succinct, continuous, cool rhyming poems with everyone's voices and melody talents."
In an interview with Les Chroniques Automatiques from April of this year, Doseone clarified that he and Patton took on production duties, while all three members contributed vocals. "In this record, there are no solos, everything is done with the three of us," he said. "All the singing's shared and together. I think we don't even do a whole verse alone."
That collaborative spirit can be heard on the group's recently shared album track "Tough Towns." As we await final details of the upcoming release, relive the lead single in the player below.
