Freedom’s For The Brave: The Mixtape Out Jan. 14th
“ …adding in big beats, subtracting the scuzzy guitars, smoothing out the chorus, and having Alcock give his best Jack-White-yelping impression.” – NYLON
“…a sticky indie edit of the old-school, feel-groovy joint.” – VIBE
The New Royales have a background as interesting as the music they create together. The band will release Freedom’s For The Brave: The Mixtape on January 14th– an album of covers featuring some of their various influences, including tracks by Depeche Mode, The Zombies, Jefferson Airplane & more.
Having previously unveiled their interpretation of The Monks’ classic, “Drugs In My Pocket“ The New Royales drop their irresistible take on The White Stripes’ “Fell In Love With A Girl” via NYLON today. Download “Fell In Love With A Girl” HERE, and we encourage you to post & share.
The New Royales band member Liz Rodrigues recently lent her voice to Eminem’s latest hit, “Survival.” 2-time GRAMMY winning (4-time nominated) producer, DJ Khalil, has worked with the likes of Jay Z, Dr. Dre, Drake, Kendrick Lamar & Aloe Blacc, whose hit “Wake Me Up” is currently #1 on the iTunes R&B chart and featured in a national Beats by Dre campaign with Kevin Garnett & Colin Kapernic. In addition, DJ Khalil and Liz, along with Canadian multi-instrumentalists and vocalists Erik Alcock & Chin Injeti, have co-written with Pink on her 5 million albums sold, The Truth About Love, Pitbull’s Can’t Stop Me Now & Eminem‘s new hit record Marshall Mathers LP 2 (“Survival”), which debuted at #1 on the iTunes album chart.
Hailing from separate parts of the world; Liz (Portuguese), Erik (English Canadian), Chin (East Indian) & DJ Khalil (African American), The New Royales’ diverse makeup lends a hand in the uniqueness of their sound, pushing their own musical boundaries whilst still remaining a cohesive unit.
