Having recently released his most successful album to date, ‘Lasers,’ Lupe Fiasco has announced that he will be releasing a new electronic music side project called Sound Clash, influenced by his “experimental” musical interests.

“There’s definitely a canon of music I listen to,” the ‘Superstar’ rapper told the Examiner, of his newfound eclectic tastes. “There’s a lot of the more experimental electronic kind of world, so things like Glitch Mob and M83 and then from the alternative world and the rock world I also like Silver Sun Pick Ups and Radiohead and Metallica and Killswitch Engage … And then there’s my favorite band of all time which is, The Prodigy. And when it comes back to hip hop I still like Nas and Mos Def and even the newer guys like Kendrick Lamar and Kid Cudi who can definitely kind of catch my ear and keep my edge sharp I guess.”

Regarding his new project, not to be confused with his ill-fated punk side project, Japanese Cartoon, Lupe continued, “Me and my partner Scott started a dj collective called Sound Clash so we’re working on that album right now and hopefully we’ll have a single out by Halloween and will try and push an album out around that and tour and all that.”

The Chi-town rapper also hinted that a new solo album is in the works, as well. “There’s a Lupe Fiasco mixtape that’s coming, which hopefully we’ll have out before the end of the year and that will hopefully lead up to the next Lupe Fiasco album. And that’s really it, just more touring, touring, touring and music, music, music, music.”
