James Franco is one of those rare creatures, a pretty boy it’s hard to hate. He secures this status in large part due to his impeccable career choices, from early cult comedy Freaks And Geeks right through to 127 Hours via the likes of Milk and Howl. Now he’s turned his hand to music by teaming up with performance artist Kalup Linzy for a project called Kalup And Franco. Their debut release ‘Rising’, produced by Dj Rupture, is a slow soulful organ-propelled post-dubstep treat. Listen after the jump – it’s out on the ‘Turn It Up’ EP on July 12.
