After almost a 3-year hiatus since his last album ‘The Story Of My Life’, Bishop The Overseer returns with a new single “Runnin Back”. Intimate & laid back, the Contemporary R&B/Hip-Hop Surround Sound recording features smooth vocals & mesmerizing melodic instrumentation with a powerful commentary undertone of the present political climate.
Produced by Tone Jonez, whose credits include everything from Grand Hustle artists to Disney & WGN, “Running Back” is the perfect re-introduction to the game for Billboard charting Bishop. The lyrics are elegantly garnished, carefully crafted, & thoughtful, dealing as they do with the topics of emigration in the pursuit of liberty and happiness, addiction, & suicide.
Although musically silent for a while, New Jersey-raised Bishop was simply expanding his entertainment repertoire. In fact, his hiatus from music was spent starring in big screen film productions like “Music & Lyrics”, “Enchanted”, “American Gangster”, “I Am Legend”, “Taking of Pelham 123”, & “Salt” after making his acting debut on Dennis Leary’s “Rescue Me.”
Stay tuned for news of the release of a remastered version of “Money Spot (Part 1)”, coming in August.
