New Release: The Bullitts – ‘They Die By Dawn & Other Short Stories’

 

What’s an album where Jay Electronica makes three features and also has Rosario Dawson singing? The Bullitts new album out today not only features the aforementioned but also includes appearances from Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def), Lucy Liu, and Tori Amos.

They Die By Dawn & Other Short Stories sets a strong precedent for any future cowboy film soundtracks. Sounds range from whimsical and slow, disco, rocked out, mashed up hip-hop, and on. Nothing is predictable and everything is wonderful.

Video: ‘They Die By Dawn’ (Movie Trailer) ft. Erykah Badu

 

Our boo Erykah Badu is in a new black cowboy flick called They Die By Dawn. The cast is quite drool-worthy, also including Michael K. Williams (“Omar” from The Wire), Rosario Dawson, Giancarlo Esposito, Isaiah Washington (Grey’s Anatomy), and Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy). Written and directed by none other than Jeymes Samuel, this ought to be a real treat and have a killer soundtrack.
