For those of you who have been with me for awhile, you will remember the Spoken Word album I put out awhile ago. It has been tucked away for awhile, but right now, at this very moment, I have pulled it back out of the fire. The album was called Out of the Loud. It featured poems from my books Translating The Avenues, Mixtape, as well as some previously unpublished poems. It was downloaded by nearly 3,000 people.
Due to my renewed interest in the Spoken Word format, I am bringing Out of the Loud back into the public’s domain. You can download it by visiting the new ALBUMS section of the site. It’s completely free. More or less it was all done as a token of appreciation for all of you and what you have done for my life.

But none of that is new information to many of you who have already downloaded, and still to this day, enjoy the album.
But this is the news you have been waiting for, that I faintly brought up the other day. There is a new album in the works, that will be released on October 16th, 2012. It’s called Piece of Roads.
Piece of Roads will feature completely brand new works. What makes this album truly special, and quite different from the original one, is that all the tracks on the album are unscripted, unedited, off the cuff recordings….all of which have been recorded on the road or in little brief moments of silence.
Like I said, the album will be released to the world on October 16th, 2012. It will be available in the ALBUMS section, just like Out of the Loud. I’ll release more information, and updates on the recording process as more time passes. But I just wanted to shed some more light on it. It’s good to know the loop.
Oh yeah, and here’s a preview of the cover:
