Musician and producer Steven Julien shared the news on Twitter, according to to the tweet Yasiin Bey will be releasing a new album called Negus. But Negus won’t exactly be getting a conventional release. There will no Spotify upload or compact disc for the project. Instead Negus will be presented to live audiences as a new media installation with Art Basel Hong Kong already pegged as the project’s testing ground. An event was held in New York explaining Bey’s manifesto. Writer Ann Binlot was in attendance. She noted that his intentions for the project are very much rooted in “society’s inability to focus on anything because of technology,” thus explaining the unconventional route that he’s taken, quite purposely.
