El-P’s nieuwe album is zo goed als af en wordt binnenkort gemasterd. Remixmag interviewde hem en vroeg waar de titel ‘I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead’ vandaan kwam:
“The simplest way to explain it is to say that the album title is what I imagine the city to be whispering in my ear. This really is my New York record, my post-traumatic stress record. It’s been a weird time, and I really wanted to take a snapshot and chronicle some of the vibe that I’ve been encountering in the city since our world started to tumble down the rabbit hole, without being too heavy-handed or obviously political. I think that people are losing their fucking minds, and I’m one of them. I’ve gone through some dark times between the two albums, so the title fits.”
