Legendary Irish Producer Jacknife Lee (The Killers, U2, R.E.M.) has shared a glimpse of his latest musical project ‘The Jacknife Lee’ – his first under his own name – the album features collaborations with the likes of Earl St Clair, Beth Ditto, Aloe Blacc, and Open Mike Eagle and many more and will be released May 29 via Slow Kids Records.
The album’s first single Made It Weird feat. Open Mike Eagle “Open Mike Eagle was on my dream list of collaborators,” says Jacknife Lee.”but I didn’t think he’d do it. His flow is ridiculously clever and smooth. I’ve been a fan of his for ages. Once he was convinced to come to Topanga we just hung out, listened to records and I played him the beat and he took it away. And then this happened. He makes it sound so so easy but he’s doing some mad shit in there. This beat is the only sample on the record. It’s from Francis Lai, Young Freedom.”
