Introducing The Mos Def Music Tee embedded with the new Mos Def album, 'The Ecstatic'!

Mos Def is the first artist to release the new CD in T-Shirt format; four more “Mix Tees” and several new artist tees are coming this Fall as part of the rapidly growing Music Tee™ Collection.

Within weeks of launching The Music Tee™, an innovative new T-shirt that literally weds music and fashion by embedding digital music in the shirt, clothing label LnA is pleased to announce the second shirt in their new series -- and the first “artist” shirt -- The Mos Def Music Tee™, containing the new Mos Def album, 'The Ecstatic'.

The shirt was produced in collaboration with Downtown Music and music innovator Invisible DJ, and will available for purchase beginning July 7, 2009.

The Original Music Tee™, a “mix tape” shirt containing “album art” on the front and a play list on the back, features such up-and-coming artists as The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, Alice Russell, Theresa Andersson, WAZ, Magic Arm, Lettie, Passenger, Holmes, Amy Kuney, Charlie Mars, The Silent Years, Mason Proper, Nive Nielsen and Afternoons.

Each shirt also has a hang-tag printed with a URL and a unique code allowing the purchaser to download the play list.

Several more shirts will be added to The Music Tee™ Collection in the fall, including several artist shirts and four “mix tape” shirts being created exclusively for fashion retailer Shopbop.

The Music Tee

The Music Tee™ has garnered rave reviews since its launch on May 26, 2009:

“If you're still mourning the loss of your ex-boyfriend's perfectly holey (and holy!) Led Zeppelin tee shirt that you lost in the breakup, take heart: Another perfect marriage of soft cotton and hard rock has arrived in the form of LNA's new Music Tee.” - Glamour

“Probably the best two things in the world have to be music and fashion. Probably the best idea in at least a few centuries: the Music Tee by LnA and The Invisible DJ.” - This Next

“Though it is now obsolete -- except for a virtual version in your iTunes library, perhaps -- seekers of the perfect boy-tee-for-girls LnA have teamed up with Invisible DJ (whose compilations you've heard looped while shopping at Ron Herman and Juicy Couture) to revive album art...and make it wearable.” -

“...a really cool, new and unique way for musicians to make money to survive as musicians, while creating a new outlet for fans to experience the music itself.” - Bombin’ Magazine

“Note to bands, clothing is a necessity in life, music, no matter how much we wish for it, isn’t. Are you picking up what I’m putting down?” - Lost In A Supermarket

Critical Praise for Mos Def - The Ecstatic

“The Ecstatic is…an album that comfortably jumps across continents on a hip-hop goodwill-ambassador tour.” – Pitchfork

“As an artist … Mos occupies a crucial place in hip-hop” - XXL

“...There is no better lyricist or deliverer of lyrics in music [than Mos Def]. Not in hip-hop. Music.” - Esquire

“Ahead of its time...Mos Def’s most well-rounded project to date.” - Giant

More recently LNA shot their Fall 2009 look book featuring THE DELTA FIASCO, a band from Liverpool.

Drawing inspiration from music and bands from around the world Alexander and Leight continue to expand and develop their idea of the perfect wardrobe staples.
