Death Grips are working on a new album with the director of ‘Shrek’

Death Grips have shared a photo of an unlikely studio partner – Shrek director Andrew Adamson.

The Sacramento noise-rap crew shared a photo on their Instagram last night (March 11), outlining that they’re “working on the new album with Andrew Adamson”. Adamson is best known for directing both Shrek and Shrek 2.

Check out the photo below. Death Grips’ last record was the surprise-released ‘Bottomless Pit’, back in 2016.

Death Grips were last seen on UK shores for Field Day festival 2017. In NME‘s review of the day, we wrote: “Nothing yet has quite prepared Field Day for the arrival of Sacramento noise architects Death Grips, who soundcheck over at the Crack stage with 2011’s ‘Guillotine’ and make everyone go nuts. They leave briefly, to a deadly silence, before returning and blasting out an hour of their trademark brutalist hip-hop.

“Barechested, roaring, and straight in from Primavera Sound in Barcelona, MC Ride is on top form for the band’s first UK show since October. There’s no sign of their recent 22-minute track ‘Steroids (Crouching Tiger Hidden Gabber)’, but timewise that’s probably a good thing: they end on the previously soundchecked ‘Guillotine’, bringing the moshing crowd to a furious boil.”

Shrek 5, meanwhile, is expected next year.
