London-based producer Dolenz will release his debut LP, ‘Lingua Franca’, on dBridge’s imprint Exit Records, which also put out his first EP, ‘Evesdrop’, in 2017.

The album’s lead single, 'Pull', features vocals from Detroit rapper Guilty Simpson, best known for his work with Madlib and Black Milk.

Dolenz explains that the 16-track album is “a metaphor as to how humans, on the whole, are out of sync with Earth, and how we will end up destroying the planet. I use my music to communicate my ideas, or in this case, my concerns.”

'Lingua Franca' is out May 17 on Exit Records and can be pre-ordered on Bandcamp now. Check out Soundcloud clips of the album below.
