Montreal-based Planet Giza announce their sophomore album Ready When You Are, will be out on April 7, 2023 via AWAL. To herald the news of the album, the trio release the latest single from the project ‘Quiet On The Set’ out now with an accompanying music visual co-directed by Will Abu and Dovi.
‘Quiet On The Set’ is a laid back, funky hip-hop tune, with bouncy rhythms and catchy melodies, courtesy of the group’s Rami B & DoomX. The track opens with a single shaker before a dark, chromatic piano line comes in, accentuated by jazzy synth stabs. Tony Stone’s distinguished vocal hits when the beat drops, softly comforting his love interest, “when the world don’t make you smile girl you can always cry on my shoulder”.
The release of ‘Quiet On The Set’ arrives hand in hand with the announcement of Planet Giza’s upcoming album Ready When You Are, landing April 7th. The 12-track LP will feature a range of hip-hop & R&B stars, including Kaytranada, Mick Jenkins, Kojey Radical, Saba, Venna & Topaz Jones. The project touches on various themes, from fame to relationships, once again narrating the experience of Tony Stone, as he traverses through the hectic & hedonistic life of a rising rap star.
With a series of impressive pre-released singles already under their belt, Ready When You Are is a fantastic display of musical development & maturity from the three Montreal natives.
