k-os

MAKES HIS BIGGEST AND BOLDEST STATEMENT YET

WITH DOUBLE ALBUM

BLack on BLonde

OUT ON NOVEMBER 27, 2012

FIRST SINGLE “DOG IS MINE” IS SOARING AT MODERN ROCK RADIO,

WHILE NEW SINGLE “NYCE 2 KNOW YA” GOES TO CHR AND HOT AC RADIO THIS WEEK

Innovative, provocative, ground-breaking, fearless and incredibly talented – k-os is yet again leading the charge of our musical landscape’s next chapter. What better way to do that then with a double album – out through Crown Loyalist/EMI Music on November 27, BLack on BLonde is two slamming records: one album of rock tunes, on which k-os sings and plays drums, guitar and bass, and one album of old-school hip hop jams.

Recorded at Hayden Christensen’s deserted Laurel Canyon mansion, BLack on BLonde is Canadian hip hop’s first double album and the only thing large enough to contain k-os’ big musical ideas. Amidst the glitz of LA, k-os fell in love and from his ecstasy and heartache come the most personal and revealing lyrics of his career.

First single “The Dog is Mine” with it’s in-your-face punk rock confidence is already on the cusp of becoming k-os’ biggest Modern Rock radio hit ever, while “NYCE 2 KNOW YA” goes to Top 40 and Hot AC radio this week, offering fans a succulent taste of pop hip hop as only he can deliver. “It’s all about coming full-circle,” says k-os, who very deliberately references both Mos Def and Bob Dylan in the name of his album. “People don’t generally want to take things too far. However, like Bob Dylan I felt trapped by my birth into the music industry as a hippy or folk hip hop singer, I’m kind of over that feeling, you know? It’s time to go electric and a song like “NYCE 2 KNOW YA” is a celebration of that.” “The Dog is Mine” is currently out digitally and “NCYE 2 KNOW YA” will be available on October 9.

“k-os is one of Canada’s most profound creative forces with significant global influence,” says Deane Cameron, President of EMI Music Canada. “His innovation knows no boundaries and his message is always powerful. It has been rewarding for EMI Canada to watch k-os progress over the years, where today he gives all of us his most thrilling music to date.”

With an impressive history to say the least…he’s twice gone platinum, toured with Drake, recorded with The Chemical Brothers, won a Source award, won multiple JUNO and MMVA Awards (with a staggering combined 34 nominations!) and was a 2005 Grammy-nominee, k-os continues to challenge himself and the industry as a whole. “I consider myself to be hip hop’s first alternative/emo-rapper, and now it feels like the game’s finally caught up to me,” says k-os. “It’s my job to take the music to the next level.”

BLack on BLonde features exciting collaborations with Travie McCoy, Metric’s Emily Haines, Black Thought (The Roots), Corey Hart, Sam Roberts and Sebastien Grainger (Death from Above 1979). “My friends say this is the record I’ve been waiting my whole life to make, there’s a confidence now,” says k-os. “It feels like it’s my time.”
