Mike Patton Announces Details for
Upcoming Release of Peeping Tom

By: Spacelab Research Staff
After a lot of talk, leaked tracks on the Internets, and wining and dining by major labels, Mike Patton appears ready to finally release his Peeping Tom project.

A revolutionary, watershed sort of moment for Patton, Peeping Tom is said to be more of a pop album than anything else. But before anyone cries sellout, consider this: his notion of pop might not be mainstream.

"This is my version of pop music," said Patton when speaking about the album. "In way, this is an exercise for me: taking all these things I've learned over the years and putting them into a pop format. I've worked with many people who have said to me, 'oh you have a pop record in you, eventually you'll find it,' and I always laughed at them. I guess I owe them an apology."

Appearances are made by a number of well-known contributors, including: Norah Jones, Kool Keith, Massive Attack, Amon Tobin, and Bebel Gilberto. Some of the collaborators never actually worked directly with Patton, but traded files over the Internet to build the demos into final versions.
