As many acts have done before them — such as, say, TV on the Radio — the guys of CunninLynguists took a mini-break to focus on side and solo projects. And in 2010, we saw the results of that time off via Kno’s solo debut, Death Is Silent, and Deacon The Villain’s slept-on effort with Sheisty Khrist, N.W.L. They also had their hands in other projects, which saw Kno producing a track on Freddie Gibbs’s Str8 Killa EP.
That collaboration with the Gary, Ind. native went beyond just handing over a beat, though, as the rapper will be returning the favor on the upcoming CunninLynguists album, Oneirology, which is their fifth. Along with Gibbs, the Southern trio will be joined by Big K.R.I.T., fellow QN5 member Tonedeff, and Sonnymoon’s Anna Wise.
You can view the entire track list below while the cover art for the album is to the left. Oneirology is due out March 22.
