PRØHBTD Premiere: Thievery Corporation’s “Let the Chalice Blaze”

By David Jenison on December 9, 2016

Thievery Corporation announced today that their new album The Temple of I&I is finished and slated for release on February 10, 2017. In connection with the announcement, the duo partnered with PRØHBTD for the premiere of the album track “Let the Chalice Blaze.” The D.C.-based duo, which channeled Jamaican musical influences in the past, dug deeper on the new album heading to Port Antonio, Jamaica to absorb more sounds and seek fresh inspiration. “Let the Chalice Blaze” also reflects the island’s love for cannabis. 

"The innovation, spirit and power of Jamaican music is a constant source of creative manna for us," says Hilton of the influence. "On the musical map, Jamaica is an entire continent. Frankly, we could have spent a year there, soaking up the vibes in the air and the strength and resilience resonating from the people. And for us, the only way to connect with this rich source of inspiration was to work in that environment—to feel the pulse of the place."

Non-herbal collaborations on the album include newcomer Racquel Jones from Kingston, Mr. Lif, Darryl “D-Train” Burke, Puma Ptah, Lou Lou, Zeebo and Elin. The Temple of I&I is their eighth studio album and the follow-up for 2014’s Saudade.
