Multi-platinum selling Hip-Hop luminaries Cypress Hill have announced the release date for their 10th Studio album, Back In Black, following their critically acclaimed 2018 album ‘Elephants On Acid’.
Now 30 Years into their career, ‘Back In Black’ – produced by Detroit’s Black Milk – will be released on March 18 via BMG.
On this new record, Cypress Hill knew they had more to offer with ‘Back in Black’. “This album is a return to our roots,” Sen Dog says. “We were proud hip-hoppers back in the day and we’ve gone through it all. We’re proud to be part of the hip-hop industry. Doing a straight hip-hop joint was the way to go.”
The album announcement also marks the release of another brand-new track from the group, titled ‘Bye Bye’. On the dark, percussive track, Cypress Hill throws another curveball by adding rising Michigan born rapper Dizzy Wright into the mix, who delivers a standout verse about the cost of violence.
LISTEN TO ‘BYE BYE’
On ‘Bye Bye’, B-Real said “I think with this song, it’s a statement where – in a roundabout way – we speak to the politics of today. That we’re being lulled into this dreamworld. To try to blind us from the separation that the politicians and government create. Trying to put us to sleep and while we’re in this sleep state of unawareness they do whatever they want.”
Following the release of earlier tracks ‘Champion Sound’ and ‘Open Ya Mind’ in 2021, the former a featured track on the soundtrack of the Major League Baseball, video game, R.B.I. Baseball ’21, ‘Bye Bye’ continues to elevate the Grammy nominated group’s distinctly powerful dual-vocal dynamic to new heights, with Dizzy Wright adding another element to the sound. ‘Back In Black’ sees them enter an incredible fourth decade of releases, shining a spotlight on the reason they’re consistently hailed as one of the greatest hip-hop acts of all time.
