Bilal Connects w/ Philly Collective Killiam Shakespeare on the Soulful "The Circle" [PREMIERE]
Bilal and Killiam Shakespeare cooked up something special.
On Friday (November 2nd) Philly-based instrumental collective Killiam Shakespeare will release their sophomore album A Town Called Elsewhere. The album is an eclectic mix of soul, jazz, hip-hop, and electronic. And, because of its density, it’s an album that rewards repeat listening.
The hard-hitting “Crispus Attucks,” which features an appearance from fellow hometown hero DJ Jazzy Jeff, is the first single from A Town Called Elsewhere‘s. Now, on the eve of the album’s release, we are happy to premiere one of the standout tracks from the album. Today we’re premiering “The Circle,” a soulful bop featuring the legendary singer Bilal, singing over Killiam Shakespeare’s punchy drums and lush strings. It sounds like classic Bilal.
You’ll be able to download or stream A Town Called Elsewhere tomorrow. We would encourage you to take it all in at once. The songs, transition into to each other. (Trust when we say this: it’s impressive when you take it in.)
Check out “The Circle” below.
