Please note new street date: June 5. Limited opaque white vinyl edition. One of the beautiful things about instrumental music is that the listener can decide what the narrative is. With "Adult Themes", El Michels Affair has created a "choose your own adventure" in musical form. "Adult Themes" marks the long awaited, highly anticipated return to an album of original compositions from El Michels Affair. In 2017, in between producing, playing, and recording on other artists' records, Leon Michels began creating compilations of short interludes intended to be sampled by hip hop producers. Some of these wound up becoming songs by Jay Z & Beyonce, Travis Scott, and Don Toliver. These minute-long snippets were inspired by the dense moody work of 1960s composers like David Axelrod, and Francois de Roubaix, as well as Moondog's brand of classical jazz. Michels was having so much fun creating these instrumental/orchestral nuggets that he decided to expand on some of the ideas and create what would become the soundtrack for a movie that has yet to be made, an imaginary film entitled "Adult Themes".
