Kalup Linzy and James Franco Release 'Rising' Collaboration: VIDEO


Video and performance artist Kalup Linzy is collaborating with James Franco on an EP to be released in July. Here's the first fruit of that collaboration, a moody, soulful, collage-style video for the track "Rising".

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

Says Linzy: “James and I have collaborated for over a year. He contributed vocals during recording sessions. He and I also exchanged video and vocals… James and I have both felt that sometimes developing projects separately and then bringing the other in later helps move the projects along. He is busy with school and films and I pretty much travel the world year round. We’re not planning to tour or anything like that for the EP. The music is a part of an ongoing collaboration.”

  1. James Franco is simply creative and it is good he has many opportunities to show it.

  2. Is there anything Franco doesn't do?

  3. I really like this song. Sounds like a legit song (versus most of Kalup's past stuff which seemed novelty or satirical, and which I loved). I do feel a lil bad for Kalup cuz he seems to be taking this collab very seriously whereas Franco doesn't seem all that invested. Wish Lizy would just do his own thing.

  5. Four years ago a primary schools has to do a survey, let the children write head first football player's name. The adb family transfer list looks is complete by this school . David Beckham and ronaldinho are on the list.

  6. We are anxious to know Neil warnock (queen's park rangers manager) how to adapt to such an environment.Perhaps he will be assigned to the garden, and seta fire to candles around the massage pool.Although rich through the chicken processing industry , adb are expected to do,people hope that they can give some Indian cricket Blackburn into the super league of the type of light.
