Despite his debut album, Nerd’s Eye View, close on the horizon with a slated November 9th release date, Erk has decided to give away a brand new EP for free. The Prelude includes songs from his forthcoming LP in additon to tracks that will only be available on this free release.
The Prelude premiered through SF Weekly and marks a new high in the anticipation leading up to Nerd’s Eye View. “I’ve always released free music,” Erk explains of the EP’s price tag. “I guess I do it so when the people finally have to pay for something they’ll look back at all the free music and won’t mind spending with me. They know I’m good for it.” Between mixtapes, music videos, and unreleased tracks, some might argue that Erk is spreading himself too thin – that he can’t have much up his sleeve for his upcoming LP. One listen toThe Prelude, though, and it becomes evident that Erk Tha Jerk is just getting started. Hit the jump for DL link as well as visuals for “Perfect Mixtape” (my favorite cut from the EP)
