This past Friday, Copywrite released a free album through Man Bites Dog Records. So with our late pass in hand, we'd like to share it with those that aren't already aware. The title, a play on The Beatles' classic Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Bang, is Copy's way of "paying homage to one of [his] favorite groups and albums of all time." Read up on the inspiration behind the project below then hit the jump to stream/download.

Feeling burnt out on hip-hop after releasing two albums in the past year, Copy was craving something different. He went on a Beatles and Beach Boys binge, and one day, while listening to Sgt. Pepper's, he recounts, "I had the headphone jack halfway in and it played only the speaker with the music and not the vocals." Immediately struck by the unorthodox time signatures, Copy was excited by the challenge of it. "I love rapping complex and crazy, but I never really have the platform for that," says Copy, "It was perfect."
