The long-awaited 2004 album Born Again from Danger Mouse and Jemini is finally set to be released. This second collaborative effort between the renowned producer and the New York-based rapper was recorded in the period between 2003 and 2004 and will be released through Lex Records on August 25. A glimpse into the album is given with the release of their new song, “Brooklyn Basquiat,” which is available for listening below.
Danger Mouse and Jemini first made waves in the underground music scene in 2003 with the release of their debut album, Ghetto Pop Life. They immediately dove back into the studio to work on their next project, which resulted in Born Again. However, the album was unexpectedly put on hold, and now, almost two decades later, the music from this LP will finally reach the ears of their fans.
In the previous year, Danger Mouse revealed his joint album with Black Thought titled Cheat Codes. The album features the hit singles “No Gold Teeth,” “Aquamarine” with Michael Kiwanuka, “Strangers” featuring A$AP Rocky and Run the Jewels, and “Because” with Joey Bada$$, Russ, and Dylan Cartlidge.
