The breaks producer has formed a band for his new album, due in June.
Grammy nominated producer Adam Freeland will unveil his newest full-length in June under a new moniker, Freeland.
Freeland, who is perhaps best known for his nu skool breakbeat sound, has sliced off his first name from the project as an acknowledgement that Cope™ is a new beast: a full band project. The album, which sees Freeland acting as producer for the likes of Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago and Marilyn Manson bassist Twiggy Ramirez along the way, features Kurt Baumann fronting Freeland and singing on a variety of tracks throughout. Says Freeland, "I've always mixed rock into my sets anyway, so having a band is just a natural progression from that. Freeland has all the hard-hitting grooves of my DJ sets, but played live they're even more raw, personal and in your face. This is the sound I’ve always heard in my head, so now I want to hear it as loud as possible!"
