Sage Francis on BBC Radio

On Tuesday, July 13, rapper Sage Francis sat down to chat with Lauren Laverne on the BBC 6 Music Radio Show to discuss his most recent album, Li(f)e.  Francis discussed the shift in style from beat oriented to folk rock, using live instruments with big-name collaborators (members from Grandaddy, Death Cab for Cutie, DeVotchKa, Sparklehorse, and more).  The live audio no longer is streaming, but session photos can be found here.

Francis performed acoustic versions of his “Hell of A Year” and “The Best of Times” for listeners; the latter is from Li(f)e, which was released on May 11 on Anti-.  The album features album artwork by Shepard Fairey, best known for his “Obey Giant” street art and Obama “Hope” poster, and it tackles the subjects of cultural hypocrisy and organized religion.
