stream Mikal Cronin’s ‘MCIII’ in full
Mikal Cronin has been getting ready for the release of his third album, MCIII, with a pair of solid advance singles. Mikal is now streaming the album in full a week ahead of its scheduled May 5 release. As mentioned, the album's split into two distinct halves, with Side A boasting more of the catchy hooks that MC II was full of, and Side B functioning as a six-song concept piece. Cronin admits to cribbing the structure of the album from Kate Bush's The Hounds of Love, as he told SPIN:
I just really liked, more and more, thinking about the structure of that and how you can listen to it in multiple ways. You can do just the A side, or just the B side, or both together. I like the idea of trying my own version of that. Plus, I had been toying around with my own version of a concept record for a long time, but this is an easier way to do that without a hundred percent committing to that story.
You can stream MCIII in full now via iTunes.
