In April 2009, Asher Roth released his game-changing debut album, Asleep In The Bread Aisle. Now, in celebration of its 10th anniversary, the album will make its vinyl release debut on 21 June via SRC/UMe.
Originally released by Schoolboy/SRC/Universal Motown, Asleep In The Bread Aisle features guests Cee-Lo Green, Busta Rhymes, Keri Hilson, Jazze Pha, Chester French, and New Kingdom. The album fuses Roth’s influences spanning hip-hop, rock, and R&B for a masterpiece of contemporary popular music, featuring the double-Platinum hit ‘I Love College’ and three more singles: ‘Lark on My Go-Kart,’ ‘Be By Myself,’ and ‘She Don’t Wanna Man.’ Asleep In The Bread Aisle debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and is Gold-certified by the RIAA.
“Asleep In The Bread Aisle as an album and the experiences it gave me—as a major label debut and for my life—it made me who I am, and led me to where I am right now,” says Asher Roth. “It gave me the most insight into how the world works, and who I want to be in this world. Asleep In The Bread Aisle set me off on this crazy, 10 year journey.”
In May, Asher Roth will tour 13 cities in the UK and Europe for ‘10 Years Of Bread With Asher Roth (A Celebration of Asleep In The Bread Aisle and Beyond)’. The dates begin with a show at London’s 02 Islington Academy on 9 May and concludes at Le Rex in Toulouse, France on 25 May.
