Lamp Mode Recordings emcee and CEO Json released a new single today featuring S.O. and Nico Wells titled “Necessary”, track No. 6 of his new EP which also dropped today, Foreign, Vol. 1.

Foreign is the first of the series which will always feel different from my regular albums,” Json said. “These projects will be kind of like my alter ego, so to speak. It’s me just enjoying the creative process and making music without having a complete theme to follow.”

The St. Louis-based artist explained where the name Foreign came from in a press release.

“This project is a representation of who we are as believers,” he said. “When you see us, we may look like everybody else you’ve been around, but when you talk to us, there will clearly be distinctives about us that make us different from the rest of the world. For me, Foreign is not just a project — it’s who we are.”
