The new album from Ohio’s Copywrite “God Save The King (Proper English Version)” has been released on Man Bites Dog Records.

With stellar production from Marco Polo, Bronze Nazareth, Stu Bangas, Curtiss King, Jaguar Skills & Kount Fif, Megahertz founder member Copywrite is on top form throughout.

There’s been huge international public & media interest in the release over the past few months, not least due to the quality of artists also featured from both sides of the Atlantic. This has seen MC’s the calibre of Akala & Sonny Seeza, S.A.S. & Sean Price, Genesis Elijah & Royce da 5 9, Iron Braydz & Crooked I, Bigz Flygerian & Inspectah Deck, Melanin 9 & Killah Priest and many more stand shoulder to shoulder on various tracks with further contributions from the likes of Evidence, Mystro, Roc Marciano and Torae.

The final official video taken from the album is the Jason Rose produced “Ghost in the Machine” which features London’s Context, currently riding high on the back of winning MTV’s “Brand New Unsigned” artist competition and playlisting on BBC Radio 1

Shot in Columbus Ohio and Hammersmith London, its a fitting finale to celebrate the launch of an exceptional album. Directed by John Hendrickse of Dirty Media London in the UK and Sean Grevencamp in the United States. Directors of Photography were Spaceship “Despa” Robinson (Despa Stay Fresh) in the Uk and Sean Grevencamp in the United States. Copywrite is working on a new Megahertz album and putting together plans to tour Europe in early 2013

Its been an epic journey, but the day has finally arrived

After the initial concept of the album was born during the first couple of months of 2011, and after a very long & winding road in the months which followed, Copywrite’s new album “God Save The King (Proper English Version)” releases today on Man Bites Dog Records

A Stateside version called simply “God Save The King” was released with an entirely different tracklisting in the States in February 2012, however this version took the longest to complete given the massive array of international talent from the UK, United States and Canada who also feature.

Needless to say, the UK media have taken a huge interest in the release over the past few months, with nearly 30 separate magazines either reviewing or publishing interviews (with more to come), djs & online platforms from both sides of the Atlantic jumping all over the various single releases and videos, with further UK satellite tv station support.

Latest to give props to the album is The Hip Hop Village, the people behind which also run 16 Bars Magazine

Read the full review HERE

Also look out for a new video “Ghost in the Machine” featuring London’s Context coming very soon

Copywrite himself is also busy putting together the new Megahertz album, and plans are underway for a European tour taking place early 2013

The album is available on iTunes internationally, and people can check in at www.copywritesworld.com or www.manbitesdogrecords.com for more information

You can keep up to date with Copywrite on twitter @Copywrite or with The Hip Hop Village @HipHop_Village

Fresh in UK stores today, the August edition of Echoes Magazine, for many years regarded as the “black music essential monthly”.

In this month’s edition, a two page feature has the magazine’s Sunil Chauhan speak with Ohio’s Copywrite about his new album God Save The King (Proper English Version) which releases on Man Bites Dog Records on Tuesday 7th August 2012.

Headed, “God Save International Collaboration”, the interview initially touches upon the international flavour of the album given the many UK and American artists and producers who feature alongside Copywrite, and also acknowledges that the names involved are highly regarded in the independent hip hop community.

Copywrite also speaks about recording a new Megahertz album, gives an in depth insight to his much discussed “switch” to Christianity and how that sits with his involvement in hip hop, his various musical influences…..and his meeting with a fat banker who turned out to be a huge Souls of Mischief fan!!
