William S. Burroughs is Posthumously Dropping a Psychedelic Spoken Word Album

William S. Burroughs — the Beat Gen provocateur who passed away in 1997 at the impressive age of 83 — is posthumously releasing a few shocking readings of his drugged up, non-linear 1959 novel Naked Lunch as a psychedelic spoken word album titled Let Me Hang You, reports the New York Times. It's a project Burroughs began near the end of his life, originally intending to pair them will experimental music from guitarist and composer Bill Frisell, pianist Wayne Horvitz, and the violist Eyvind Kang. Though he ended up abandoning the project shortly after starting it, ostensibly aware that the 50s were not prepared for such a collection. i-D
