James Franco and Kalup Linzy Announce Their Debut E.P.

Kalup and Franco — a.k.a. performance artist Kalup Linzy and human Swiss army knife James Franco — are releasing an E.P. on July 12. It's called Turn It Up, and it's out via Dutty Artz, the label founded by genre-hopping cool guy DJ /Rupture. As you may recall, the duo has already released one track, "I Love You"; also, the creative process breaks down like this: "Linzy said he plays piano and comes up with basic chords, and Franco sends him music he likes and they riff off of that. Both do vocals and produce their own tracks. They’re also in the process of producing videos to run with their live performances." Excited? Terrified? Please, share your feelings. [Pitchfork]
