Experimental hip-hop artist AESOP ROCK has dropped a new video for his song Blood Sandwich, taken from his forthcoming album The Impossible Kid.
The new album is the follow-up to 2012’s Skelethon, and will be his seventh studio effort, disregarding the mountain of EP’s, mixtapes and compilation albums under the rappers name.
Aesop Rock has been a mainstay of the underground hip-hop scene for almost two decades, with the release of his debut Music For Earthworms in 1997 marking his place as one of the more intelligent and socially conscious rappers of our time.
Aesop had the following to say about the new record via Facebook:
“I grew up as a middle child between two amazing brothers. There are many stories from our youth that we enjoy revisiting when we get together – stories that have become classics to us. I wanted to visit one story about each of them, and dedicate a song to the two people that shaped me more than anyone else in this world. This track is produced by me, and features some additional synthesizers from Grimace Federation, and a guitar line from Allyson Baker of Dirty Ghosts. All scratches were performed by DJ Zone. The video was directed by my friend Rob Shaw, who is also responsible for the “Rings video”, The Impossible Kid web series, and a few more video components that will surface soon. Please share this with anyone you think may enjoy it, and come see us at one of our upcoming tour dates. Peace and Love!”
Blood Sandwich is the second single to be released from The Impossible Kid, following on from the track Rings unveiled in February. You can check out both tracks below.
