Highlights: The Knocks Release LP2, “New York Narcotic”

The Knocks hosted a bus party to give fans and media an early listen to their new album “New York Narcotic”. Check out highlights and listen to the new album here.

The Knocks released their second LP, “New York Narcotic” at midnight on Thursday. To mark the occassion, they rented out a party bus decorated with the album cover on the side, and ushered around media and fans while spinning the new album for them at an exclusive listening party.

New York Narcotic introduces a deeper side of The Knocks, as their personal stories are woven throughout the album. Inspired by New York City’s melting pot of cultures, it provides a first-person narrative, opening with JPatt discussing the city and how they view it almost as a loved-one. You can also hear Jpatt make his rap debut as he sings and spits bars on a majority of the tracks. The album concludes with “Fung Wah Bus”, named after the now-defunct N.Y.C. to Boston line known for its cheap tickets and wonky schedule. The track will keep you wondering if this is The Knocks swan song to the city that raised them.
