Die Antwoord Detail Their Final Album '27'
In a series of tweets, the duo revealed that their forthcoming LP is titled 27. Previously, the group had named the record The Book of Zef.
The album is set to feature "27 songs and many collaborations with our favourite artists around the word" and will be "released unusually over the next year or so."
The duo added that the feature spots will shine a light on artists that "are (still) kinda unknown and from South Africa." They also added that the album will be pared down for a 10-song soundtrack LP that will accompany a feature film that is currently in the works.
If that somehow wasn't enough, the group revealed the first single titled "Golden Dawn" would arrive as a B-side of a 7-inch for their song "Alien," which they recently treated to a video. That track was included on their 2016 LP Mount Ninji and Da Nice Time Kid.
