Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Grammy award winning artist RAC (pronounced Ar-Ay-Cee) – known as André Allen Anjos releases his highly anticipated new album EGO. The record follows the release of Anjos' 2014 album Strangers, which SPIN called, "...an impossibly smooth listen." With this release, Anjos is re-directing RAC to songwriting which accounts for the record's intimate but full-lunged tone, as heard on lead single "This Song" (feat. Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij) and follow-up "I Still Wanna Know," featuring vocals and a guitar solo from Weezer's Rivers Cuomo as well as additional production by Classixx.
Recorded between Anjos' home studio in Portland and sessions in Los Angeles, EGO features additional collaborations with MNDR, St. Lucia, KNA, and Joywave. EGO is Anjos' most ambitious, cohesive and personal work to date and chronicles his organic progression as an artist. "The word ‘ego' can have a negative connotation, but I think of it as an exploration of self," he explains. "The album is really me figuring out what I personally wanted; I felt free to do whatever."
