Saul Williams | New Album Release on CD & Vinyl

Saul Williams is a poet. a lyricist. a leader. and a voice. I first heard Saul Williams on YouTube - Williams is standing in front of a mic and freestyling right out of the New York Times (..."New York Times. White Collar Crimes"). There are notebooks at his feet, probably filled with poetry and such. Zack de la Rocha is playing the drums behind him, but that's only a minor detail. There is nothing more powerful than a mind and a voice "...and an idea whose time has come."

Saul Williams first released the new album in November 2007 for free on NiggyTardust.com. On July 8th, Fader Label will be releasing the CD & vinyl, including 5 bonus tracks. The album, The Inevitable Rise & Liberation of Niggy Tardust, is Saul Williams' third album.

  1. err. it kind of makes my stomach turn that he clearly ripped off david bowie's album. i wonder if he'll sue...

  2. That's the point. Reznor is a HUGE fan of David Bowie. He also appears in the video "I'm Afraid of Americans" as Bowie's stalker. Interestingly enough, Ziggy Stardust was released in 1984 and was remastered in 1990 and released with 5 bonus tracks.

  3. I guess I should have mentioned in my post that Trent Reznor co-produced Williams' new album.

  4. yes i know that reznor is great friends with bowie. it still doesn't make up for an incredible lack of creativity, and to me, an offensive title altogether.

  5. Why offended?
