The Runaway releasing a new EP in May

The Runaway is back with his latest release, Saturday Sonrise, a hip-hop collaborations project that is built like a 70s soul record. But the artist, known for infusing spoken word, folk and soul influences into his music, believes this is more than a soul record, it is soul refreshing. Produced by S1 (Strange Fruit Project), Saturday Sonrise sees The Runaway collaborating with several artists, all around one central theme - Saturday.

"While Sundays are often seen as the conventionally 'spiritual' day, I find Saturdays to be a great day to connect with God - whether it's spending time with family, to performing music, to chillin’ with the homies. The day can be so spiritually refreshing and a reminder of the God's desire for relationship with us."

The project utilizes a recording method similar to classic soul records, with variety of mics and an emphasis on 'one take' recordings to capture a feeling over an extremely polished sound.

Set to release on Friday, May 24, the 8-track project contains 14 features including theBREAX, Manchild, Relic, Elias & Die-Rek. So on May 24, thank God it’s Friday, grab the loved ones, and get ready for a Saturday Sonrise.

1) Saturday Sonrise feat. Ruslan & Beleaf of theBREAX
2) We Make Saturday Night Come Alive! feat. Manchild of Mars ILL
