Five years after their last project, 2013’s Bastards Of The Party Remy Banks, Jeff Donna, Lansky Jones, Nasty Nigel, Prince SAMO, DJ THOTH, and Cody B. Ware — better known as the Queens-based troupe World’s Fair — will finally release their debut album New Lows.

Set to drop via their longtime label Fool’s Gold Records, World’s Fair has released the first single “Elvis’ Flowers (on my grave).” An ode to the now-shuttered Elvis Guesthouse in New York, Nigel explained the basis behind the song.

“The deeper DJ Thoth and I got into deejing at Elvis Guesthouse, the more we experimented with BPMs and tempos finding a middle ground to please both ourselves and the crowd,” he states. “Lansky Jones, NOLIFE and myself flew over to Detroit to link up with Black Noi$e and work on this album. Naturally ‘Elvis’ Flowers’ came from blending jungle and rap the same way we were experimenting behind the decks. The music video documents that year running around New York City and the watering hole that was Elvis Guesthouse.”
