Urban electro pop phenom Theophilus London releases his debut LP Timez Are Weird These Days on Warner Bros. Records world wide on July 19th. Following a series of wildly popular independent mixtapes and the Lovers Holiday EP that landed him a performance on The Late Show with David Letterman earlier this year, Timez Are Weird These Days arrives as Theophilus' most fully realized work to date: a wide-open album of original music, genre bending sound, mesmerizing storytelling and inspired, honest emotion.

Culture vultures and hardcore music fans alike already know Theophilus from his self-starting music trajectory as well as from his style icon profiles in GQ, Esquire, Elle, NY Times, Complex, Fader and NME. Timez Are Weird raises the bar on everything that's come before, moving past the comfort zone of sampledelia and oddball cover tunes into the dreamlike headspace of a globetrotting young artist blurring the lines between 80's rap, new wave beats, freestyle noise and the snarling guitars of psychobilly surf rock.

Recorded in NYC, LA and Stockholm, Timez Are Weird showcases Theophilus as a rapper and a songwriter working with a small clique of producers. With John Hill, Dave Sitek, Jokke and Ariel Rechstshaid at the control Theophilus kicks off the album with rap credentials intact on "Last Name London" before moving through a surprising range of emotion, from party starting dance floor defiance to moments of quiet intimacy and introspection.

Timez Are Weird exclusively features two guest vocalists: indie star Holly Miranda on "Love Is Real" and Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara on "Why Even Try"-the song she joined Theophilus to perform on "The Late Show."
