It’s barely two weeks into 2015, and indie rap mogul Tech N9ne is plotting his next move — his next studio album, entitled Special Effects.
Due out May 5, the project is said to have an all-star list of features and producers… though Strange Music has yet to divulge the list.
“We’re not giving it all away just yet, but what I can say to all my Technicians who have been patiently waiting for this, get ready for your minds to be blown,” said Tech N9ne. “We made some dreams come true on this album. You WILL NOT be disappointed. It’s a beautiful thing.”
The Special Effects cover art was created by world-renowned artist Rob Prior, who has collaborated with the rapper on a series of special edition paintings recently.
In addition to a new album, Tech is gearing up for a year of extensive touring, beginning with the Special Effects Tour 2015 this Spring, in which he will be joined by Chris Webby and labelmates Krizz Kaliko and Murs, among others.
The tour kicks off April 3 and conclude on June 8. A complete tour itinerary will be announced in the coming weeks.
Prior to the Special Effects Tour 2015, Tech will be heading back down-under for a tour throughout Australia and New Zealand in March.
