Action Bronson & The Alchemist Recruit Philly-based Guitarist Curt Chambers for "Terry" (MR. WONDERFUL pre-order)




Just about one month ahead of his VICE Records "debut" MR. WONDERFUL, Action Bronson has unleashed a fourth track from the album; "'TERRY" PRODUCED BY @Alchemist, [PtHILLY'S OWN] CURT CHAMBERS ON GUITAR, @ChauncySherod WITH THE SOUL AT THE END = PERFECTION." It's the latest pre-release single VICE has strategically "leaked" from MR. WONDERFUL, which was preceded by "Easy Rider," Party Supplies duet "A Light In The Addict," and "Actin' Crazy," as well as non-album track, "Big League Chew." "Terry" reunites Action Bronson with his Rare Chandeliers (2012) producer buddy, The Alchemist, who hand-crafted a "jazzy, diminished chord walk with a prime boom-bap shuffle" as okayplayer poetically puts it. "Life's ironic and it's simple / Smoke good, f*ck, eat, drink, / Drive a nice car, wear all green mink," which has been forever embodied on "Terry"'s vibrant Freako Rico-designed single artwork (along with the rest of the album's packaging).


"The whole album is a stand-out. I don't care about individual songs, I'm trying to make a complete, classic project," Action Bronson previously lamented to British publication NME early last summer. "This is just rap. I'm not trying to make people think I'm some sort of scientific wizard or inspirational poet. F*ck that! It's just happy, funny, rugged, rough rap." While @ActionBronson promises, "OF COURSE, THERE WILL BE VINYL, CD, AND CASSETTE. POSTERS OF ALL ARTWORK READY-TO-HANG. ALL KINDS OF SH*T," MR. WONDERFUL is currently only available for iTunes pre-order; but to sweeten the already plentiful $8.99 deal a little more, they've decided to throw in instant downloads of "Terry," "Actin' Crazy," and "Easy Rider" upon pre-order(s). Bronson's self-descriptive MR. WONDERFUL will become available world-wide this upcoming March 23-24th by way of VICE/Atlantic Records.
