Theophilus London Featuring Sara Quin Out Now

"Timez Are Weird These Days" includes cameos from Holly Miranda and one half of Tegan and Sara.

Theophilus London's Lovers Holiday EP dropped in February to much ovation. This week, the full length album, Timez Are Weird These Days was released on Warner Bros. Records.

Track 6 on the album, "Why Even Try," features Sara Quin of lesbians' favorite Tegan and Sara and Track 2, "Love Is Real," features Holly Miranda.

Said Rolling Stone of the album:
If you made a hipster-rap bonus baby in a laboratory, you couldn't do much better than Theophilus London. The 23-year-old Trinidad-born Brooklyn MC's neo-retro hip-hop mashes up TV on the Radio's vocal cadences, old-school break-dance beats and the forlorn melodic tug of a Smiths fan (he dropped This Charming Mixtape in 2009). "Why Even Try" recalls Tom Tom Club's electro-bubblegum classic "Genius of Love," but place-holder lyrics—“ "Back on the road again/Hitting Paris on a 10," from "All Around the World"—show that even in hipster rap, you need to rock the words, too.

Said Sara on TeganandSara.com, the band's official website:
It’s been a secret dream of mine to sing on a hip hop track, something where i could use a different voice, different spirit. i was so delighted/excited/freaked out when i got an opportunity to do exactly that with the phenomenal Theophilus London! -skq
