The Hot Natured singer will release his next solo album in July.
P.U.M.P. follows Alexander Williams' 2010 album Love Harder, but he's probably better-known for his work as a vocalist with Hot Natured and Infinity Ink—he's the voice behind hits like "Benediction" and "Infinity." He's a producer as well, however, and after releasing a few EPs on Crosstown Rebels he'll return to the label for P.U.M.P..
Williams handles all instruments and programming on P.U.M.P., which a press release describes as a "seamless mix... the nemesis of modern day dance music 'track' culture." First single "Deep In The Night," which you can stream below, hints at a funky, bass-heavy sound not too far removed from his recent Crosstown work.
"Initially I didn't set out to make an album," Williams says, "rather, this music has come naturally over a long period. It’s informed by the broad spectrum of music tribes I’ve encountered on my ongoing journey into sound. This is music made for the love of just making it.” The record features collaborations with Kali and Art Department's Kenny Glasgow.
