Published Aug 24, 2018After sharing "Want To (For the Youth" and the Jazz Cartier-assisted "Come Inside" earlier this year, Lou Phelps has lifted the curtain on a new album.
Titled 002 / LOVE ME, the Montreal MC's latest will arrive September 21 through Last Gang. The album follows his 2017 mixtape 001: Experiments and features contributions from Kaytranada, Karriem Riggins, Jahkoy, Planet Giza and Pony, in addition to the aforementioned Cartier.
In Phelps' words, 002 / LOVE ME finds him "telling relatable love stories that I have lived/Imagined/fantasized about, it contains the good and bad and the ugly of a relationship."
A second taste of the album can be heard below with "Miss Phatty," which was produced by Phelps and brother Kaytranada as the Celestics. Phelps adds that the bouncy cut "encourages the kids to go to the stripclub and to fall in love with them."
Alongside the announcement, Phelps has mapped out a run of Canadian tour dates. From late September to November, he will play cities such as Calgary, Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto.
