London-based indie label Weird World shares ’70’, the third track from Sam Mehran’s forthcoming posthumous album Cold Brew.

Sam Mehran’s new posthumous track, ’70’, follows previously released singles ‘LOUNGY’ and ‘COLD BREW’.

All three tracks are from the late American-Australian musician’s forthcoming posthumous album, Cold Brew, a collection of instrumental rock music driven by “hooky guitars, puckish attitude, and dry. driving sonics'”

The album will drop on July 28 to coincide the third anniversary of the artist’s untimely passing.

Sam Mehran is best known for co-founding the rock outfit Test Icicles and solo work as Matrix metals and Outer Limits Recordings. A versatile instrumentalist, he produced everything from dance-punk and disco to hip-hop and pop.

He was also known to be highly critical of his own work, which lead to him making Cold Brew as a record he can enjoy as the songs were short and he didn’t have to dwell on production and his own voice.

The album was recorded in Los Angeles in 2018, and compiled under the guidance of his father Abbas Mehran, and curated from over one hundred songs by Sam’s friends, Nicholas Weiss and Katie Wagner.
