Rapper Evan "Chuck Inglish" Ingersoll, one-half of Chicago duo the Cool Kids, announced a new partnership between his imprint, Sounds Like Fun, and Dave Sitek's label Federal Prism, distributed by ADA and home to Sitek's main project TV On the Radio, Oh Land, Kelis, and Scarlett Johannson.
Ingersoll's label will serve as a conduit to release his solo full-length debut, Convertibles, his first official release through Sounds Like Fun via Federal Prism, and continue with ongoing and future creative projects.
"Creating Sounds Like Fun gives me a fresh start to finish what I set out to do in the beginning of my career," Ingersoll said in a statement. "I've always wanted something to call my own, to have my own factory, and Sounds Like Fun is the platform for all my ideas." He added that he will be working with Mike Eizinger from Incubus, Big Boi, and Chromeo on Convertibles, which as of yet has no release date.
"It's my first time using an executive producer," he says of the album. "It's my orchestration of the past 3 years of my life. I don't know which way it's going to go – but I know it'll be awesome."
