Death Grips release surprise instrumental ‘soundtrack’ album – listen

Track titles spell out 'Jenny Death When' in reference to unreleased album

Death Grips have released a 14-track instrumental album.

Titled ‘Fashion Week’ and described as an “Instrumental Full-Length Soundtrack”, the full record is available to stream on YouTube and to download from the band’s website.

A set of instrumentals purporting to be by Death Grips were shared on Reddit four months ago, but were soon dismissed as fake.

The titles of the 14 ‘Fashion Week’ tracks each consist of an individual letter. In sequence, they spell out the phrase “Jenny Death When”. ‘Jenny Death’ is believed to be the second part of forthcoming double album ‘The Powers That B’ which, it was revealed in October 2014, is now complete.

The rap group announced the news on Facebook, writing: “Our new double album “The Powers That B” is now complete. This is the album cover. Digital and physical release dates coming soon.” It has since been reported that the album will be released in February in certain territories.

‘Niggas On The Moon’, the first part of the double LP, was released digitally last year. A track from ‘Jenny Death’, ‘Inanimate Sensation’, was unveiled in December – click below to listen.

In spite of all the band’s activity – and rumours of a forthcoming tour – Death Grips announced their intention to split in summer 2014. The Californian group’s career has been characterised by unpredictable behaviour, from leaking their own album ‘No Love Deep Web’ (complete with a cover image of an erect penis) to ‘performing’ a number of shows in which they set up their equipment but failed to appear on stage, usually resulting in the trashing of their gear.
