Th1rt3en, the project featuring legendary emcee Pharoahe Monch, Jack White drummer Daru Jones, and guitarist Marcus Machado, unveiled today their new single, “666 (Three Six Word Stories).” The song drops ahead of the group’s upcoming debut album, A Magnificent Day For An Exorcism, which is due out on January 22nd release via Fat Beats Records.

While the album, according to a recent press release, “…speaks to the cleansing that we need from societal ills and a world gone mad,” the new single is “A dynamic, dizzying exploration of hyper consumerism and political corruption, police brutality and murder.”

Comments, Monch, “‘666 (Three Six Word Stories)’ was not written for the sake of simply being provocative, but to be able to spaz out over a dark groove, losing all control, allow Marcus, Daru and myself to clear a path through this heavy darkness and forge through towards the light at the end of the archaic tunnel we’re all collectively experiencing. I also wanted to embellish on the legend of Ernest Hemmingway’s six word story, so I wrote three six word stories at the end of the song, hence the title 666.”
