DEBUT NEW TRACK
"The Neighbourhood aren't a group usually associated with hip-hop - but they soon will be. They're putting together a new mixtape - titled #000000 & #FFFFFF - which features a bunch of up-and-coming rap stars. They've put out three tracks and we've got the exclusive on the fourth. It's called "Jealousy" and features Casey Veggies and 100s - the latter of whom has literally teleported down from the purple mothershipwhere Andre 3000, Prince, and George Clinton reside."
The Neighbourhood’s new project #000000 & #FFFFFF will be out later this year. Vocalist Jesse Rutherford says about the album, “"#000000 & #FFFFFF is a diary of songs that are inspired by our thoughts while on the road. It exposes our anxiety, rejoices in our achievement and expresses our ability to create whatever the fuck we want. It’s our freedom to explore popular music as we know it. It’s not us as a band… it’s us as a sound."
Three tracks are available now, listen at Live Mixtapes.

The Neighbourhood broke out with hit singles “Sweater Weather” and “Afraid” from their debut album I Love You. “Sweater Weather,” whichBillboard described as “deeply compelling,” was recently certified double platinum by the RIAA for sales in excess of 2 Million units and had one of the longest runs on the 2013 radio charts. The song was also praised by Rolling Stone, who noted “Layering hasn’t sounded this cool since ‘The Sweater Song.’” follow up single “Afraid,” praised by Billboard for its “edgy, subtle hooks,” is seeing similar success, currently top 5 at Alternative Radio.
The Neighbourhood is: Jesse Rutherford (vocals), Jeremy Freedman (guitar), Zach Abels (guitar) & Mikey Margott (bass)
