Watch: Saul Williams – “Explain My Heart”

January 29, 2011

It’s been three years since Saul Williams’ last Trent Reznor-produced album dropped as an In Rainbows-esque free-or-five-dollar release, and now the poet/singer/rapper’s first official follow-up LP is on the way. Speaking to Miles Marshall Lewis, Williams revealed that his latest studio effort, Volcanic Sunlight, was recorded in Paris (where he’s been living since last year), and will arrive via Sony France this spring.

“There is a lot of fun to be had when you try and fit as many words as you can within a three-minute song,” Williams told Dazed Digital alongside the premiere of his new “Explain My Heart” video, “but there is also a lot of fun in trying to get that message across in three words, or better yet when the music can overpower the words and convey something really pure and perfect that affects our psycho-emotional space.”
