“This album is my ode to having fun in the midnight hour,” says Quik. “That’s the best time for making music in my opinion. It’s quiet, especially if you’re in a recording studio. You can hear everything and you know everybody’s asleep. You can sneak and do your best work.”
Fans that pre-order the album now on iTunes get the free track “That Getter” featuring Quik’s son David Blake. Early purchasers will then receive “Pet Semetary” on September 30. The Midnight Life also features appearances by El Debarge, Bishop Lamont, Suga Free, Dom Kennedy, Mack 10, and more.
“Musically, this album is a bulls-eye for me,” adds the Compton representative. “Can’t nobody tell me different because I’ve seen it give people chills. I’ve seen it make people happy, smile, drink, party, dance, ask for it on repeat. This album is for people who like to have fun.”
Quik will be performing on the Murs 316 Stage at L.A.’s Sunset Strip Music Festival this Sunday. The Midnight Life is scheduled for release on October 14. Pre-order is available now on iTunes.
