It seems like just yesterday that Raury was sitting just under the industry radar as a ferocious new entrant in the ATLien bloodline. And while many of you were introduced to the genre-smashing singer/rapper/producer on his free Indigo Child tape, Raury’s major label debut as part of the Columbia Records family, All We Need, has just been announced and it’s got plenty of star-power behind the boards. The Stone Mountain, Georgia native has recruited the likes of Danger Mouse, RZA, Big KRIT and Tom Morello for features on the new record, which is due on October 16th. But the fortunate few that preorder the record will have the opportunity to hear it weeks ahead of time in either NYC, LA, Atlanta or London. You can do so by hitting his site, but before you do, peep the lead-off single “Friends,” featuring the Rage Against The Machine guitarist below to get your motor running. Check back in the weeks ahead for all of the supporting sounds and sights.
