Miles: From An Interlude Called Life
New music from LA duo Blu & Exile is exciting news. The two connected for 2007’s “Below the Heavens” and it became a West Coast underground classic. They reconnected for 2012’s “Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them,” 2017’s “In The Beginning: Before the Heavens,” and last year’s “True and Livin’.” This time around, the album is titled Miles: From an Interlude Called Life.
Music announced in Complex exclusive
They dropped the single “Miles Davis” earlier this year. According to Complex, we’re in for a treat. “The project will be released through Dirty Science Records on July 17, the same day that Below The Heavens arrived thirteen years ago. The double album features Blu’s childhood friend, Miguel, Exile’s former bandmate, Aloe Blacc, and L.A. legend Aceyalone. It’s a triumphant return for a duo ready to receive their flowers once again; a nostalgic trip that still finds a way to sound remarkably fresh. Almost a decade-and-a-half after their emergence, Blu and Exile once again sounds like one of the sharpest hip-hop duos coming out of the West Coast.”
The project drops on July 17.
