In his eternal quest to fill all your face holes, and mind, with his greatness, James Franco’s album Turn It Up drops on July 12, the first of what will undoubtedly be a parade of bizarre musical offerings. Franco paired up with drag performance artist Kalup Linzy to form Kalup and Franco for the album; the two met when James invited Kalup to join him during James Franco’s General Hospital stint, which had we remembered to watch at the time, would have been the only reason we would ever, ever see General Hospital.
Vulture describes the duo, who release their song “I Love You” at New York’s Fashion Week this past February, as a true collaboration. “Linzy said he plays piano and comes up with basic chords, and Franco sends him music he likes and they riff off of that. Both do vocals and produce their own tracks. TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re also in the process of producing videos to run with their live performances,” they reported at the time, Seeing as how the two performed at Sundance in blond wigs and are committed to amazing live performances, Lady Gaga better watch her steez, and quick.
