Following the release of the critically acclaimed and end-of-the-year-chart-topping Black Up, the minimal yet heady Shabazz Palaces has announced an international tour. The tour runs through April and ends at Brooklyn Bowl.
 
To pique your interest, the group has released a new video for “Are You…Can You… Were You…? (Felt),” directed by Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes and featuring a beautiful young thing having some sort of existential experience. In between screen shots of Warhol-esque flora, she is seen riding her bike home, almost getting hit by Butler in his ice cream-colored Benz and having a fight with her mom.
