audio ‘stache: Saul Williams To Occupy All Streets 11-11-11

On 11/11/11, Saul Williams will release his fourth album, Volcanic Sunlight, which was recorded in Paris (Williams’ newfound home), and produced by Renaud Letang (Feist, Manu Chao), Volcanic Sunlight is an eclectic album blending electronic, hip hop, and rock elements. In 13 tracks, Saul Williams gathered all of his energies and has created his brightest, most rhythmic and danceable opus yet. Check out the official music video for the lead track, “Explain My Heart.”

Saul Williams is multi-talented with a career as an artist, musician, influential poet, and award-winning screenwriter/actor. Volcanic Sunlight sees the breathless-spat attacks of his early slam poetry reduced to the exultation he was always chasing. He maintains his ferocity and ups the percussion, while losing the frown. “There is a lot of fun to be had when you try and fit as many words as you can within a three-minute song,” he recently told Dazed Magazine, “but there is also a lot of fun in trying to get that message across in three words, or better yet when the music can overpower the words and convey something really pure and perfect…It’s as simple as wanting to lift the spirits.”

Representing quite a substantial fan base around the world, Saul Williams is currently touring in Europe. The US will discover him on stage soon, with a line up designed to highlight all the different aspects of Saul’s talented personality.
