RAC Releases Debut Album STRANGERS + iTunes Single of the Week
Today is RAC's day, and that is not an April Fool's joke.
For his full-length debut Strangers (OUT NOW!), composer/remixer/producer RAC called on more than a dozen guest musicians to bring to life his lush and dreamy hybrid of indie-pop and electro. The mastermind behind much-acclaimed reimaginations of tracks by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Lana Del Rey, and Bastille, the multi-instrumentalist born André Allen Anjos co-wrote and produced each of the album’s 16 songs without ever meeting most of his collaborators (a lineup that includes Golden Globe-winning composer Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Tegan & Sara, Tokyo Police Club, Katie Herzig, and Cherrytree recording artist Matthew Koma). But while its title nods to the lack of literal companionship between Anjos and his guest artists, Strangers emerges as an intensely warm and intimate album fueled by RAC’s gift for fusing breezy melody with fresh, forward-pushing sound.
Not only is RAC's song "I Should've Guessed" featuring SPEAK, currently number one on Hype Machine, but his song "Cheap Sunglasses" (below) featuring Matthew Koma is iTunes free Single of the Week!
