In October 2017, Bishop Nehru delighted fans when he revealed that his next album, Elevators: Act I & II, would be produced by none other than DOOM and Kaytranada. Now, it appears that the album will arrive in the coming weeks.
Bishop has released a creative trailer for Elevators, revealing more details about the ambitious project. It will be split into two parts: Act I (Free Falling), and Act II (Ascension). The album is slated to arrive March 16th.
“This project is a collection of my feelings straight from my heart, all of my ideas were created specifically off of instinct and intuitive occurrences,” explains Bishop. “This album is my answer to the question, ‘What would you say your music sound like?’ My answer to that would be ‘Grammy Rap.’ There’s ‘Mumble Rap’ and then there’s ‘Grammy Rap.’ With this project I was largely influenced by music theory and Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys. This is my attempt at a ‘rap’ Pet Sounds.”
Bishop also announced a series of dates for fans to take part in a listening session-slash-“secret intimate in-studio pizza party” for the album. Those interested can learn more information at his e-home.
