When two of hip-hop’s most accomplished composers get together to make an album, you know the results are going to be special. Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) & Adrian Younge began their work together in 2013 on the critically acclaimed album There Is Only Now, and their partnership further developed on their score work for Marvel's Luke Cage. Today, we are proud to announce the forthcoming release of their carefully constructed and masterful The Midnight Hour. This long awaited album showcases the duo's songwriting ability like never before.
Lead track and first single “Questions” featuring CeeLo Green is out today and has an unlikely origin story; CeeLo, Adrian and Ali originally explained to Pitchfork back in 2016, a demo version of the song appeared as a sample on “untitled 06 | 06.30.2014.” off of Kendrick Lamar’s Untitled Unmastered project. The completed track perfectly captures the album’s underlying roots in hip-hop’s origins.
