We’ve covered L’Orange and Jeremiah Jae extensively on our site for a while now. The two artists are coming together for a brand new collaborative album titled The Night Took Us In Like Family. The album is completely produced by L’Orange with Jeremiah Jae handling mic duties, and the album’s narrative plays like a dark crime drama in five-parts. The new album will also feature guest appearances by Homeboy Sandman and Gift of Gab (from Blackalicious).
They recently released a first taste from the new project with their single, “Taken By The Night”. The track is really laid-back, piano-driven, jazzy and perfect for Jermiah Jae’s storytelling, which is central to the new album. You might recall Zilla Rocca & The Shadowboxers’ No Vacation for Murder which was an album in the same vein. The central theme in that being revenge through storytelling, and that was pretty entertaining.
I’m intrigued to hear how the rest of the story unfolds for L’Orange & Jeremiah Jae. Their new album The Night Took Us In Like Family will be available April 21, via Mello Music Group. You can pre-order it on iTunes now.
