Detroit’s Quelle Chris today announced the impending release of his next project, the wonderfully titled Being You Is Great, I Wish I Could Be You More Often. The announcement is accompanied by the release of a new song and video called “Calm Before” which features a prominent guest appearance from Cavalier and some help from Suzi Analog. The tape is due out February 10th via Mello Music Group and it features a guest lineup that includes Roc Marciano, Denmark Vessey, Jean Grae, Elzhi, House Shoes, Homeboy Sandman and Alchemist, among others.
From the MMG press-release for the project:
The title comes from a real-life discussion about the difficulties of consistency. How each of us are subject to both our own bad spirits and bursts of inspiration, those unavoidable Serotonin and dopamine peaks and valleys. Being You is Great is an attempt to catalog those moods. It’s about learning to love, or at least recognize, the best and worst of one’s self. It’s about loneliness and comfort. Learning to hate love and learning to love hate.
Pre-order now on Bandcamp or your preferred digital outlet and check out the previously released single “Buddies” below.
