Kaytranada | 99.9%


Montreal-based artist/producer Kaytranada’s new album ‘99.9%’ will be out on May 5th via XL Recordings. He announced the album on Benji B’s Montreal Special show on BBC Radio 1. The LP holds 15 tracks and features guest appearances by BADBADNOTGOOD, Karriem Riggins & River Tiber, Syd of the Internet Band, Vic Mensa, Craig David, Goldlink, Alunageorge, Phonte, Anderson.Paak, Shay Lia and Little Dragon.

The album is called 99.9% because as Kaytranada says: “I am never satisfied with my album and I am very indecisive.” Fans have been asking for this full-length over the past few years he has been discussing for an equally long period of time so it makes sense that he would title the album this symbol of just barely incompleteness.”

Listen to the track ‘Bus Ride” featuring drummer/producer Karriem Riggins after the jump. Pre-oder now on XL Recordings or iTunes.
