The album will be a 10 tracks offering according to the tracklist which you can find below and will serve as the follow-up to their 2018 effort Con Todo El Mundo, the 2019 dub version Hasta El Cielo, and the collaborative Texas Sun EP with Leon Bridges.
Musically, the band’s ever-restless ear saw it pulling reference points from Pakistan, Korea, and West Africa, incorporating strains of Indian chanting boxes and Congolese syncopated guitar. But more than anything, the album became a celebration of Houston, the eclectic city that had nurtured them, and a cultural nexus where you can check out country and zydeco, trap rap, or avant-garde opera on any given night.
