Tech N9ne is returning this summer with a brand new solo project, entitled Something Else.
Due in late July, the project is a collection, broken up into three sections: "Fire", "Water," and "Earth."
His camp says it will feature legendary guests from different genres and different eras, including music icons The Doors, rap superstars Kendrick Lamar and Wiz Khalifa, rock maverick Serj Tankian and singer-rapper Cee Lo, among others.
The indie rap juggernaut collaborated with the remaining members of The Doors on "Strange 2013," a reworking of The Door's "Strange Days" -- one of the last recordings The Doors' founding member, Ray Manzarek, made before he passed away in May.
"If I didn't listen to their music and their fusion of sounds, I probably would've never called [my label] Strange Music," Tech previously told Rolling Stone of The Doors' influence on him. "I have Jim Morrison to thank fo0r that."
Something Else also includes the newly released Drumma Boy-produced single "See Me," featuring Wiz Khalifa and B.o.B. On it, Tech sings and raps about how he gets overlooked by many, despite his remarkable accolades -- selling more than 2 million units independently, headlining the longest tour in rap history, and owning powerful indie label, Strange Music.
Something Else will be available for pre-order on iTunes July 2, and drops July 30th.
