Big B recently finished up the recording of his new studio album “Fool Gold” with producer Jim Perkins and like previous albums it will be the next evolution in the Las Vegas heavyweight’s sound. While in the studio, Big B took his fan favorite track “Hooligan”, from his now classic 2005 debut “High Class White Trash”, and re-recorded it with a modern day twist. The track can be heard online at http://youtu.be/xxMIekjGSM0.
“Me and Jim Perkins didn’t set out to do a remix of ‘Hooligan’, we were just in the studio between tracks and started jamming. It sounded so dope we decided to record it. One of the luxuries of playing with a band and not just rapping over beats. We mixed the old with the new on this one. Hope you like it,” said Big B. “My new record ‘Fool’s Gold’ is my growing up album and a goodbye to what I used to be. Everything must change and I’m happy to have evolved musically into to someone I’m proud of. All I ever wanted is to make good music and not just try to push a gimmick. I think I’m doing that.”
Big B’s new album is scheduled to be released later this summer via Suburban Noize Records and will feature guest appearances by Slightly Stoopid, The Dirty Heads, as well as members of legendary punk outfits NOFX and Pennywise. The songs on “Fool’s Gold” are just as contagious as Big B’s thuggish charm as he pours his heart out onto the album. With the entire music industry focused on finding the next huge star via reality television, Big B has taken a back-to-basics approach on “Fool’s Gold” and filled it with fun spirited songs that can fit into any music lover’s playlist. The album is rich is musical diversity and is cleverly inventive, as Big B seamlessly bridges the gap between rock, hip-hop, and alternative.
Big B’s new single “Here Comes The Lightning” was co-written by Pink and Butch Walker and is set to impact Active Rock Radio in the coming weeks. Big B talks about his new single in a new video blog posted online at http://youtu.be/zFfsxP3Ns6I.
