Shabazz Palaces plans to release two albums on July 14th: Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star and it's "extra-spatial twin," Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines. After debuting "Shine a Light," the lead single from Born on a Gangster Star last month, the astrally inclined duo returns today with "C.A.Y.A.," which features Thundercat on bass.
SP's accompanying statement:
"In the era of Quazarz youth, The Central District of Seattle, Washington shone wildly vibrant and pulsed strong like the muscles of the heart. Brave Forerunners, from warm points south, had arrived settled and soon began to born and unleash dazzle of all sorts from this green remote. It was here on a sunny, July day over a free lunch at the C.A.Y.A. baseball field watching the Frontiersman smash an east side club to dust, that Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star—with confused terror then resolute determination—first looked his dreams in the eye. Thee rest as they say, is mystery. The Heritage House, Lowe’s Grocery and One Stop Burgers are gone; fact is, from that glorious epoch there remain few vestiges... I’m one of them."
