Idle Warship Set New Album Release

(Press Here) Idle Warship will release their first official collection of songs entitled Habits of the Heart on October 24th, 2011, via Blacksmith/Element 9/Fontana.

The 12-track album has Idle Warship storming the music scene with a bold and indefinable mash-up of influences, from soul to hip-hip to alternative to electronic.

Idle Warship is a perfect example of how a whole can become greater than the sum of its parts and that is saying quite a lot given the musical components of this project. A collaboration between longtime friends and collaborators, hip-hop luminary Talib Kweli and critically acclaimed soulful singer and songwriter Res, Idle Warship was born out of sheer experimentation in the studio. But some of the best things in life happen when least expected. When fans of Talib and Res heard and reacted to some online MP3s of what these two had created during their off-the-cuff sessions, it became clear that that something much bigger was brewing. Since making a huge splash at SXSW in 2009 and completing a successful European tour, Idle Warship made Party Robot their mixtape with master DJ Mick Boogie and singer/songwriter Graph Nobel available for free download in 2010. It only left the fans craving more, and now the wait is over!

With an obvious chemistry, a dedication to free creative expression and now a new album, Talib and Res' partnership has become a musical force to be reckoned with. Habits of the Heart effortlessly shifts from the rhythmic hand-clapping blast of "Laser Beams" to the off-kilter futuristic track "Driving Me Insane" to the unbridled, heartfelt piano ballad "Beautifully Bad." With guest spots from Chester French and John Forte on "Covered in Fantasy," and Michelle Williams on "Katya," Habits of The Heart takes you on one thrilling journey.
