  • Nightmares on Wax's next album, Shape The Future, is coming out on January 26th, 2018. Like George Evelyn's previous seven full-lengths, the 12-track LP will come out on Warp Records, the label that's been releasing his music since the late '80s. It's his most collaborative record to date, with cameos from UK soul singers like Andrew Ashong, Jordan Rakei and former Zero 7 vocalist Mozez. Canadian rapper Allan Kingdom, who's worked with Flume and Kanye West, guests on a bonus version of "Citizen Kane." "Making Shape The Future, I've journeyed both inwardly and outwardly all over the world and both physically and emotionally," said Evelyn. "I feel like I had to mature making this record, as it posed a lot of challenges along the way—more than I anticipated. I've brought in a lot of outside people including musicians and a lot of orchestration. It's brought a lot of enrichment." Shot in New Orleans, the video for album cut "Citizen Kane" stars Langston Fishburne, the son of Oscar-nominated actor Laurence Fishburne.
    Listen to Evelyn's RA Exchange from earlier in 2017.
