RAC’s highly anticipated new album EGO out July 14th + New single “I Still Wanna Know” featuring Rivers Cuomo debuts

Grammy award winning artist RAC (pronounced Ar-Ay-Cee)—known as André Allen Anjos—will release his highly anticipated new album EGO on July 14 via Counter Records. With this release, Anjos is re-directing RAC to songwriting which accounts for the record’s intimate but full-lunged tone, as heard on the records’ second single “I Still Wanna Know,” featuring vocals and a guitar solo from Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo as well as additional production by Classixx, that debuts today. Listen the track here: smarturl.it/RACISWK. Fans can pre-order EGO at smarturl.it/RACEGO.

In support of the release Anjos has confirmed Fall tour dates across North America. Tickets go on sale this Friday. See below for complete tour details as well as additional dates globally.

Recorded between Anjos’ home studio in Portland and sessions in Los Angeles, EGO features collaborations with Cuomo, Rostam, MNDR, St. Lucia, KNA, Joywave among others. EGO is Anjos’ most ambitious, cohesive and personal work to date and chronicles his organic progression as an artist. “The word ‘ego’ can have a negative connotation, but I think of it as an exploration of self,” he explains. “The album is really me figuring out what I personally wanted; I felt free to do whatever.”
