Minneapolis hip-hop artist Charles Andrew Bothwell, better known as Astronautalis
, has just announced that his newest record, This Is Our Science
, will be released September 13 via Fake Four. Produced by Grammy nominee John Congleton, the 11-track album is Bothwell’s most autobiographical one to date and tells the story of the last seven years of his life, which have been spent mostly on the road.
Astronautalis has his roots in hip-hop and battle rap, but on the new album, he experiments with different genres. He worked with Tegan Quin of Tegan And Sara
, Radical Face
(Ben Cooper of Electric President
), and members of Midlake
and the Riverboat Gamblers
. For a glimpse into what happened when those forces combined, download new track “Dimitri Mendeleev” here
