James Franco followed through on the announcement last year that he would release a music album ep in collaboration with performance artist Kalup Linzy. Another music project is on the way from Franco, this time in collaboration with his friend Tim O’Keefe.
On Tuesday, September 25, Franco and O’Keefe will release their debut EP, MotorCity, under the moniker Daddy. Not much details from the EP are available but we do know that it was recorded while Franco was on set in Detroit for his upcoming film, Oz: The Great and Powerful, and even includes a song with guest vocals from Motown legend Smokey Robinson.
Check out the cover art for MotorCity, which features Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine—Franco’s co-stars in the upcoming movie Spring Breakers, due out in March 2013—posing in lingerie with fake ‘Daddy’ tattoos. Franco had this to say about the Young starlets on the cover: “If it was four unknowns on that cover, maybe it’d just be purely this sexual thing. But when they’re in that movie, the fact that they’re on Disney shows carries a lot of weight. Something extra’s going on behind the characters they’re playing.
Here we feature the first single from the MotorCity EP and the song is “Love In The Old Days,” which arrives to us in the form of a kaleidoscopic, vintage-styled music video with girls, beaches, smiles and sun-drenched shots galore.
