Third Man Records is excited to announce the release of “Brain” b/w “Royal Mega” (TMR-101), a new single by acclaimed Detroit MC and producer Black Milk, who co-produced both tracks with Third Man’s Jack White.
Third Man’s first foray into the hip hop world would naturally be a release from one of the most vital hip hop artists around. Black Milk (born Curtis Cross) made his recorded debut in 2004 as a member of B.R. Gunna on the Dirty District Vol. 2 compilation and released his solo debut Sound of the City the following year. Since then, Black Milk has built a rep as brilliant producer, working with the likes of the late J Dilla, Slum Village, and Lloyd Banks, while releasing four more solo albums (including 2010’s Album of the Year which cracked the Billboard 200) as well as numerous collaborations, most recently Random Axe (with Sean Price and Guilty Simpson).
Performed with a live 9-piece backing band, Black Milk’s debut single for Third Man is a funk and soul imbibed slice of classic head nodding hip hop. Both tracks are written by Black Milk and co-produced by Black Milk and Jack White–who also contributes guitars to A-side “Brain” and drums to B-side “Royal Mega.”
“Brain” b/w “Royal Mega” is available now at finer vendors of independent vinyl, via thirdmanrecords.com and digitally from iTunes.
