"Yeah Ghost" will see Zero 7 – aka Sam Hardaker and Henry Binns – teaming up with several guest vocalists, including soul/jazz artist Eska Mtungwazi, folk singer/songwriter Martha Tilston, and electronic hip-hop performer Rowdy Superstar. Their first album in three years, "Yeah Ghost" is the follow up to 2006's Grammy-nominated, critically acclaimed "The Garden."
Leading up to the album release, Zero 7 will perform at notable European music festivals, including Sudwest in Portugal on August 7th, Pukkelpop in Belgium on August 20th, and Electric Picnic in Ireland on September 4th.
Last week, [so-called] "indie" [but corporate owned by the same people who do Britney's site] music site Stereogum premiered "Everything Up (Zizou)," the first track to be heard from the album. The track features a guest appearance by Mtungwazi, as does the album's first single, "Medicine Man," which will be available later this summer. Remixes of "Everything Up (Zizou)" by Joker & Ginz, Gold Panda, and Mock & Toof will also be available soon. For a full album tracklisting, see below.
