CHUCK PLAYS BALL

And the versatile Chuck D also confirms the tracklisting for the band's new LP...

Public Enemy leader CHUCK D has written a jingle for US sports broadcaster ESPN as the band confirm the tracklisting for their forthcoming eighth LP.

The jingle, which Chuck produced with one-time Bomb Squad member Gary G-Wiz, is being used to open the US cable station’s Sunday night baseball show. In a report on his www.slamjamz.com online record label site, Chuck says the jingle was an attempt to make “something that’s in line with ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’ and a little bit of the Hank Williams Jr”. The rapper is a noted fan of US sports and has appeared on ESPN as a celebrity pundit, and, along with members of the Public Enemy extended family, including producer Hank Shocklee and members of Hyeanas In The Desert, is featured in an upcoming edition of ESPN’s magazine.

Meanwhile, the final track listing for the album ‘Revolverlution’, released by Slamjamz.com and Koch/In The Paint on July 23 in the US, has been confirmed. The album includes four remixes of classic Public Enemy material created by the band’s fans, who were invited to download a cappella tracks from the band’s website to use in their mixes. There are also some live tracks, interludes described by Chuck as “collectibles”, and ten new tracks.
