Genre-bending artist, producer and singer Mystery Skulls has announced his second studio album, One of Us, will be out 8/4 via Warner Bros. Record.For this follow-up to his 2014 breakout album Forever, a #1 hit on the iTunes dance chart, Mystery Skulls built upon his sonic tapestry of soul, house, disco and R&B, while zeroing in on a single “Big Brother”-esque concept. The album features the recently released “Music,” plus today’s new release “Losing My Mind” – both instant grats when you pre-order the album now.
One Of Us was written by the musician as the soundtrack to a story that follows the relationship of two underground, lowlife residents in a dystopian world as they fight to escape shadowy forces exerting control over society. “It’s a commentary on the fact that we as a world have allowed there to be a camera on the front and a camera on the back, and a mic here and a mic there and everywhere,” Mystery Skulls explains. “Even when you see a picture of a CEO of an important company, they’ve got the camera on their laptop covered up with a little sticker. You realize this is an actual thing. It’s dystopian, but the album is more a comment on our current reality.”
