The Latin Grammy record holders plan to release their first independent album in March, Calle 13's Eduardo Cabra tells Billboard
Calle 13 are set to release the first single from their long-awaited new album on Nov. 12, the Puerto Rican group's Eduardo Cabra told Billboard. Cabra, also known as Visitante, said that he and frontman René Perez plan to independently release the full album next March.
"We're looking at different platforms," Cabra said in an interview earlier this week. "Maybe we will give it away for free." He added with a laugh that they had also talked about making the single public Nov. 13: "13 for Calle 13."
The acclaimed and often controversial genre-breaking duo have won 19 Latin Grammy awards, the record for a group. Cabra and Pérez, who are stepbrothers, perform with a band that includes singer Ileana Cabra Joglar, their half-sister. All of Calle 13's previous studio albums, including the most recent, 2010's "Entren Los Que Quieran," have reached the Top 10 on Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart.
