In between his non-stop touring and working on his own albums, Lyrics Born seems to work in guesting on other artists’ albums (Tommy Guerro, Galactic, RL Burnside) as well as contributing a track to other projects (NBA2K6). Frankly, I’m not sure how he fits it all in!
If you’re a completist, you went out and bought all of the releases, however, since 2005 LB has been releasing the audio equivalent of a Holiday Newsletter your Aunt sends out recapping the great things your cousin did that year. The Lyrics Born Variety Show releases are a non-stop mix of rare mixes, collaborations, contributions and songs that are exclusive to the release.
The Lyrics Born Variety Show Season 3 will be released on CD soon, but in the excitement surrounding the impending release of Everywhere at Once on April 22nd LB pushed the digital download of Season 3 early to help build the excitement– there are four songs on this mix from the new album!
Not only are we blessed with the early release– for a limited time you can download the release for $1.99!! Once the physical release drops, the download price will become $9.99, so take advantage of this price!
