A posthumous Lee “Scratch” Perry album titled King Perry has been announced. It’s due out February 2 via False Idols. Lead single “100lbs of Summer,” which features vocals from London R&B singer Greentea Peng, comes with a remix by Tricky, who co-produced two of the songs on the album. Check it out below.

King Perry, written and recorded during the pandemic before Perry died in August 2021, is referred to as the musician’s final studio album. The closing track, “Goodbye,” was apparently Perry’s last-ever recorded vocal performance. According to a press release, King Perry explores new territory with synthwave, drum’n’bass, big beat, and electronica because Perry “wanted to do something new, something different but still with a dub framework.”

Daniel Boyle, who previously worked with Perry on 2014’s Grammy-nominated Back at the Controls and 2018’s The Black Album, produced the upcoming full-length LP. A handful of guest performances are scattered across the tracks, too, courtesy of Greentea Peng, Shaun Ryder, Tricky, Marta, Rose Waite, and Fifi Rong.
