Helado Negro releasing expanded edition of ‘Private Energy’ (listen), touring w/ Mitski and Sylvan Esso


Helado Negro (aka multi-disciplinary artist Roberto Carlos Lange) released Private Energy in 2016, a jazzy, funky, genre-defying record that really showed off the breadth of Lange’s range. It’s about to get its first vinyl release, and with it an expanded CD and digital release, adding three songs. Check out the new video for “Obras Complete” (which combines the interstitial compositions on the album) as well as a stream of the original album below.

A special vinyl version of Private Energy (Expanded) will be available at Other Music/MoMA PS1’s Come Together: Music Festival and Label Market on Sunday (3/26). In other news you can catch Helado Negro on tour soon with both Mitski and Sylvan Esso. No shows in NYC are currently scheduled but all dates are listed below.
