The Bullitts is a new project from Jeymes Samuel a producer who has worked with artists as diverse Jay Z, Estelle and EB favourite Róisín Murphy.
Described by Samuel as "action adventure music" the debut single features both Jay Electronica and actress Lucy Liu of Charlie’s Angels fame.
The single, ‘Close Your Eyes’, sees Liu take on the role of narrator Amelia Sparks an "ice-cold murderess awaiting execution on death row" who’s narrative joins Samuel’s baritone and Jay Electronica‘s rapping.
The narrative is apparently updated via Twitter in real time, though how the Liu’s character got a smart phone on death row is not made clear…
The accompanying video is a re-interpretation of Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel’s film, Un Chien Andalou and the album They Die By Dawn and Other Short Stories will be released this Summer. Guests on the album include Tori Amos and Mos Def.

Close Your Eyes (featuring Jay Electronic and Lucy Liu) is released on 18th April 2011
