The duo has also shared the lead single from the track forthcoming album.
Titled Miles: From An Interlude Called Life, the duo announced the forthcoming album via Complex, as well as shared the lead single from the album, “Miles Davis.” The pair also spoke about how the new album came about, revealing that they had initially worked on a trap album before moving on to make Miles. They also discussed how their process for choosing what songs made the final cut for the album.
“We try to come up with the best music we can come up with, and in the process we impress each other,” Blu said. “So, it’s like the joints that stand out. Then, it’ll be our go-to joints. And then sometimes it will just be joints that we’ll bicker over, and we’ll be like, ‘Yo, we got to get a third party involved and what not.’ But for the most part, it’s a very enjoyable process.”
“We had to get back to enjoying working with each other, because we were getting used to working without each other for a little bit,” Exile added. “So I think our first album back, we weren’t really working with each other. The songs that we ended up agreeing upon were the songs that we actually worked with each other on, which is the Miles project.”
Miles will be released through Dirty Science Records on July 17. The double album will feature Miguel, Aloe Blacc, and Aceyalone.
