Wordsmith R.A.P. Ferreira returns with news of his new album 5 To The Eyes Of The Stars (Ruby Yacht) with a release date of November 4, 2022. The album follows last year’s Bob’s Son, as well as The Light Emitting Diamond Cutter Scriptures. But today, Ferreira has also released a 6-song Blues-tinged acoustic E.P. under the alias Crow Billiken where his musical persona takes on another aspect altogether.
While Ferreira has taken today to hit listeners in their blind spot, grafting together different aspects of what he’s capable of, he also shares “Mythesysizer Instinct,” the first single off the forthcoming album. Also featured on the thick track – produced by Kenny Segal – is rapper Hemlock Ernst. When he’s not laying down lustrous vocal bars, Hemlock Ernst plays as the frontman Samuel T. Herring for the synth-pop group, Future Islands. But here he plays back up vocalist to Ferreira’s brooding lyricism.
