In the world of opera, a libretto is the blueprint, a written text that anchors the performance. In the same vein, The Black Opera’s upcoming album Libretto: Of King Legend will prove to anchor the sound and message of The Black Opera. Libretto: of King Legend is a detailed tale, told from the perspectives of both the incredible King and his loyal statesmen.
As an aperitif to The Black Opera’s upcoming album “Libretto: Of King Legend”, MMG is offering the first leak from the project: “Balcony.” A deep, warbling bass line and 80’s coke cinema synths (courtesy of producer Astronote) grace the tracks sonic backdrop. The mysterious vocalists with “black hoodies on no matter what the forecast” fill the pocket nicely with the double entendres and charisma that has garnered them a faithful following.
Libretto is the third and final installment of the three part introduction: THE BLACK OP: ERA I. Libretto creates a musical umbrella which encompasses the [r]evolutionary theme of their first installment Overture and the charismatic spirit of their second installment EnterMission., all while delving into the mind, heart and bloodline of The Black Opera.
Whether the low-end or the lyrics draw you in, The Black Opera is ready to introduce its newest installment: Libretto: Of King Legend. Available from Mello Music Group October 30th.
