Yesterday, XL Recordings head honcho Richard Russell teased his LP Everything Is Recorded by releasing a track by the same name with accompanying visuals. Today, the British producer presents the 12-song album, drawing on several artists and genres and spanning experimental electronic hip-hop, R&B, jazz and indie. XL members Sampha and Giggs make appearances alongside jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington. A highlight from the assortment is “Be My Friend,” written by rising talent Infinite Coles, referred to simply as Infinite on the tracklist.
For more collaborative work, listen to Nipsey Hussle’s “Victory Lap.”
