Transcontinental hip-hop/krautrock super-group 13 & God has announced the release of its sophomore LP Own Your Ghost for May 17 via Anticon. This will be the group’s first album since its self-titled first album six years ago.


Whether it be fact or folklore, 13 & God apparently came together outside of a broken-down tour bus in the frozen Canadian tundra. The German experimental group the Notwist and Oakland, California’s art-hip-hop collectives Themselves and Subtle apparently gelled during this series of unfortunate events, inspiring the yanks to fly out to Munich for a half month of recording. Many speculated it was a one time deal, however, this second effort confirms the band’s status as a legitimate group instead of one-off side projects for all that are involved. The video for a sneak peak at the song “Armored Scarves” off the upcoming release is below. Check it out for the sweet German accent.
