Executive Produced By Kanye West Drops October 31st
Theophilus London will release his highly-anticipated sophomore album Vibes!, executive produced by Grammy award-winning Kanye West, on October 31.
“Kanye West decided he wanted to help the culture through my voice and music,” recalls Theophilus. “He wanted to help me become a better musician and helped mentor me during the process of Vibes! He agreed to be Executive Producer after hearing Neu Law in his car system while driving through Paris.”
Joining Theophilus London, legendary Soul and R&B producer Leon Ware serves as the creative producer for the new album. Leon is responsible for some of the great moments in soul music – including Marvin Gaye’s classic I Want You and Michael Jackson’s first gold record I Wanna Be Where You Are – and has worked with legendary artists such as The Isley Brothers, Ike and Tina, Diana Ross, Quincy Jones, Minnie Riperton and Maxwell.
Over the past two years, Vibes! was recorded in Paris, New York and Germany and fully produced in Palm Springs, California. “The name came from the sign of the times. Kids want vibes, so Vibes! it is,” explains Theophilus. Along with Kanye, the record features a cast of vocal guests including, Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) and Soko. Rounding out the creative collaborations, Theophilus London recruited the aid of artist and designer Karl Lagerfeld to produce visuals for the album as the project’s art director, shooting all images related to Vibes! including the album sleeve.
Vibes! is out October 31 and available for pre-order now.
