For all his many (many many) projects, somehow it took James Franco until 2011 to realize he hadn’t done anything that could take over music headlines for a bit, so here is the inevitable end to all of that. Coming soon is a new limited edition 7″ from the dance project titled Kalup & Franco (Facebook profile link!), a collaboration between James and the drag/video artist Kalup Linzy, whom he met during his recent acting stint on General Hospital. Their debut release is out 7/12 via Dutty Artz, a label co-founded by DJ /rupture (he also produces for the duo). EP Song titles: “Rising (Both Sides Now)” and “Turn It Up (So We Can Turn It Out).” Kalup & Franco have a third song called “Fly Away,” and all three of these songs will get videos. You’ll be able to see them here or over at Videogum.com — I haven’t talked to Gabe about his thoughts on all of this just yet, but for reference, his position on Franco’s previous extracurricular output is this.
