Electro-soul composer Manic Focus is happy to announce his highly-anticipated fifth studio album, Minds Rising, will drop on Friday, April 21, 2017.
The first single, “Stronger” featuring Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), Late Night Radio, and Adam Deitch (Lettuce, Break Science), is out NOW for download and streaming. Soulful, rhythmic, and bubbling with energy, “Stronger” takes listeners on a journey into Manic Focus’ world of musical creation and experimentation. This one is a must-hear single to get you familiar with the album ahead.
Minds Rising, a work nearly two years in the making, is a flawless fusion of electronic funk, soul, future bass & classic era hip-hop. It is Manic Focus’ first full length LP since the 2014 release of Cerebral Eclipse and showcases sample-free, 100% original compositions laden with rowdy rhymes and vocal features from ProbCause and Psalm One, funky horn arrangements from Russ Liquid, dreamy top line hooks from Jennifer Hartswick, Carlile, and more.
