We recently broke the news that MF DOOM and Ghostface Killah are finally prepping the release of their joint album and on Monday, July 25, XXLMag.com will be exclusively premiering the duo’s first song from the project.
Titled “Victory Laps,” and produced by DOOM, fans will be able to hear the song on the site starting at 9 a.m. EST. A remix of the track, produced by Madlib, hit the Interwebs earlier this month.
Fans of the two masked MCs have been waiting for the album since 2006. Devin Horwitz, head of Nature Sounds Records (the label that the unnamed project will come out on), told XXL the fellas have finally reconnected, and are currently prepping the release an LP for sometime very soon, under the guise DOOMSTARKS.
“The guys regrouped just this year and really started fine tuning and really trying to hone it in to make this thing a reality,” Horowitz told XXL. “I think just recently it really clicked for both of them what this project could be and how important it was really for the fans.”
On Tuesday, July 26, both “Victory Laps” and its Madvillain remix will be available on iTunes along with instrumentals from both versions.
Horwitz says that although the disc is as a collaborative effort, DOOM is responsible for overseeing everything, as well as producing all of the tracks. But not to worry, Ghost will appear almost every song on the album, except for one or two cuts.
