Morning Glory's Recent Tour Felt Like a Symbolic Farewell to Ezra Kire's Past, Invitation to his Future
August 16, 2012
I saw MC Chris earlier this week, and apparently he is keeping very busy. At some point during the show he took some time to plug some upcoming projects. First off, a follow-up to the remix album Apple Tummy that he did in collaboration with Snobots. Apple Lung is slated for September 2nd, and just like the original it will be available for free download on his site. It remains to be seen if it will include any cover songs this time around.
Next up is something that will probably only excite fans with kids; a sequel to his children's album Marshmellow Playground, titled Marshmellow Campground. As a parent I am constantly looking for child-appropriate music that I can actually stand, so when bands or musicians I like put out kid's albums I pounce. Also, my kid showed a love of MC Chris at a very early age, and it was the go-to car trip music until she could understand the lyrics. I don't remember exactly when he said Campground was coming out, but I'm pretty sure it was sometime this fall.
Finally, he updated everyone on his Kickstarter-funded cartoon. After using the money from his backers to make a sample of the show he pitched it to AdultSwim...who turned it down. But he threw a teaser up on the Internet, and was miraculously contacted by another network who said they wanted to do ten 22-minute-episodes of his idea. He wouldn't say yet which network it was, but he listed a slew of contributors and their impressive past projects, so the end project seems to be in good hands.
All of this news, joining the announcement of his next album coming out October 31st of next year, is sure to make fans happy. Hit the jump to watch the teaser for his cartoon, listen to a track from Apply Tummy and Marshmellow Playground, and check out a skit from his last album, Race Wars, that reveals the subject matter of his next release, MC Chris Foreverrr.
