Actress preps Ghettoville
2013-11-06 by Deviant STAFF | 13 Comments

Darren Cunningham, Werk Discs manager and better known to the world as Actress, has finally, seemingly, set in concrete a release date for his long gestating fourth LP, Ghettoville.

Rumoured to be in production as far back as 2010, the album is designed to serve as a bridge to the producer's debut LP, Hazyville. Actress has released two other LPs in the interim however, 2010's Splazsh and last year's concept-heavy R.I.P, both to varying levels of acclaim.

An announcement posted to the Werk Discs website reads as follows:

"Ghettoville is the bleached out and black tinted conclusion of the Actress image"

The post then dissolves into a series of increasingly cryptic statements, such as:

"the scripts now carry tears, the world has returned to a flattened state, and out through that window, the birds look back into the cage they once inhabited".

The album will be released as a box set, which includes a 32-page artbook, three LPs, a CD and Hazyville, which appears for the first time here on vinyl. You'll also be able to grab it as a scaled-down vinyl set, a CD and a digital download.

An earlier revealed tracklist is listed below.

Werk Discs will release Ghettoville on January 27th, 2014.

1. Forgiven
2. Street Corp
3. Corner
4. Rims

this guy sounds like an pretentious prick who thinks people care way too much about his music.

I'm still debating listening to it, Does it drag at all? because the majority of 2014 albums I've listened to so far have put me to sleep.
