Danny! Swain’s long awaited studio album Payback will finally see the light of day on September 25th, 2012, the first release on the newly revamped all digital Okayplayer Records. Payback is the third album in Danny!’s critically acclaimed trilogy of concept albums, the previous releases being Charm and And I Love H.E.R., both of which received rave reviews from Pitchfork and ABC News.
Payback is a 17-track album and will feature the likes of El-P, Blu, Phonte, Gavin Castleton, Agallah, Tanya Morgan, Lil B, DJ Kay Slay, actress Amber Rose Tamblyn, and even some drumming from ?uestlove himself. The album is entirely produced by Danny! himself, who describes the beats on Payback as “a sort of tribute to the infamous sound created by Timbaland and Missy Elliott during the Swing Mob days.” Payback will be narrated by Joi, Dungeon Family affiliate and longtime Danny! mentor.
