Egyptian Hip Hop are streaming their new album ‘Good Dont Sleep’ on NME.COM a week before its release.

The Manchester electro-pop four-piece don’t release the record, which is their full-length debut LP, until October 22 – but you can hear the album now by heading to NME.COM/blog.

The record follows their 2009 Hudson Mohawke-produced EP ‘Some Reptiles Grew Wings’. You can also listen to a track from the album, titled ‘SYH’, by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.


Speaking about producing ‘Some Reptiles Grew Wings’, Hudson Mohawke – who has since worked with Azealia Banks, Kanye West and Chris Brown – told NME: “I wanted to cut my teeth on it, start doing band production…The entire thing was an experiment but it came out quite good. We went into the studio with an old German guy who built the mixing desks for Kraftwerk. He only ever built two. One’s in a museum in Germany, and he has the other.”

‘Good Don’t Sleep’ was recorded in Leeds and in Wales at Bryn Derwen studios and was produced by Wild Beasts collaborator Richard Formby.

The tracklisting for ‘Good Don’t Sleep’ is as follows:

‘The White Falls’
‘Yoro Diall
‘Strange Vale’
‘Snake Lane West’
‘Pearl Sound’
‘One Eyed King’
