HIP HOP VISIONARY K-OS SET TO DIGITALLY RELEASE YES! THIS NOVEMBER
Yes! to Make U.S. Debut via iTunes On November 17
With Physical Release to Follow on February 23, 2010
Canadian rapper and multi-instrumentalist K-OS is set to release his acclaimed third album, Yes! (Last Gang
Records), online starting November 17 exclusively through iTunes, with other digital platform downloads available
November 23. The physical release of Yes! will follow on February 23, 2010.
With its innovative, multi-genre sound, Yes! is pure magic. Hot on the heels of its Canadian release earlier
this year, K-OS' new album is already making waves in America with lead single "4,3,2,1," of which the video can
currently be seen in rotation on MTVU and on MTV2's Subterranean. In addition to the album's first single, the
release includes standout tracks "Burning Bridges," "I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman," and "Uptown Girl," which feature
special guest collaborations from Metric's Emily
Haines and Murray Lightburn from The Dears.
With several multi-platinum album and video awards, six Canadian Urban Music Awards, four MuchMusic Video
Awards, three Junos, and a Source award already in his trophy cabinet, K-OS continues to push the boundaries as
one of Canada's most distinctive, intriguing and creative talents. First making the mark on the U.S. music scene with
his Astralwerks debut Exit, the release quickly announced K-OS' pigeonhole-defying capabilities. His
subsequent albums, Joyful Rebellion and Atlantis: Hymns for Disco, have gone on to cement his
position among the most intriguing and creative talents at work in Canada today.
K-OS' full length album is slated for release February 23, 2010 and will be followed by an extensive tour of the U.S.
