Grammy Award-winner Fantastic Negrito has announced the release of an expanded edition of his acclaimed new album, Please Don’t Be Dead. Please Don’t Be Dead (Deluxe) will be released on October 5th via Cooking Vinyl and Blackball Universe.
Please Don’t Be Dead (Deluxe) will feature previously unreleased acoustic versions of five album highlights including the recent single, ‘The Duffler.’ Pre-orders are available now accompanied by an instant grat download of the LP’s powerful ‘Dark Windows (Acoustic)’, released to coincide with the annual National Suicide Prevention Week.
Please Don’t Be Dead is highlighted by the extraordinary singles, ‘Plastic Hamburgers’ and ‘The Duffler’, the latter of which earned fulsome praise from Rolling Stone: “With its greasy guitar stomp and falsetto vocal delivery, ‘The Duffler’ fills the middle ground between modern protest music for the political rally and sweaty, sexed-up baby-making music for the bedroom.”
Long hailed for his electrifying live performances, Fantastic Negrito is currently on tour in North America, with dates scheduled through early October. The Bay Area-based singer-songwriter will be among the stars performing at The Americana Music Association’s annual American Honors & Awards Show, slated for September 12th at Nashville, TN’s legendary Ryman Auditorium.
