Atmosphere looks on the bright side on new album

    After recently releasing the internet-only album Strictly Leakage, Minneapolis-based underground hip-hop duo Atmosphere will drop its next proper studio album (although, at this point, what exactly a "proper studio album" is any more is of course up to debate) April 22. An early contestant for best-named album of the year, it goes by the moniker When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold. That’s the spirit! The album will come via Rhymesayers Entertainment. A limited first pressing of the album will come packaged in a 40-page hardcover book that will contain a children’s story written by Atmosphere member Slug, lyrics, album credits, and a bonus CD of live material. Atmosphere is expected to undertake a North American tour on the same day the new album comes out.
