It’s no secret that Mary has collaborated with Dan the Automator on her upcoming album (out next month). Come October 1, Mary and a bunch of other artists will be featured on the upcoming Deltron 3030 CD. Below is a press release with additional info:
Deltron 3030– aka Del the Funky Homosapien, DJ Kid Koala, and producer Dan the Automator– have detailed Deltron 3030: Event II, their first album since their self-titled debut in 2000.
Event II is out October 1 via Bulk Recordings. The video trailer features album opener “Stardate” and Joseph Gordon-Levitt– check it out below.
Del the Funky Homosapien detailed the concept behind the album in a press release:
“This time, the album has a specific story. The Deltron world has gone too far with technology. Everything’s destroyed, and you just see the remnants of our technology. The streets are run by criminals, the police are outnumbered and outgunned, and we’re like pirates, running rogue, doing what we do to survive. That’s the scene of it. We’re trying to be as literary as possible while dealing with a musical format. I don’t know if you could even categorize this as a hip hop album – it’s more like a rock opera, but using rap.”
Before the album is out, the trio will release the City Rising from the Ashes EP on August 13, which features three tracks– the title track (which features backing vocals from Mike Patton), “The Agony” (with Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and “Pay the Price”.
