Acclaimed remixer RAC - the mastermind behind beloved re-imaginations of tracks by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Lana Del Rey, and Bastille - has released his highly anticipated debut full-length album Strangers. The artist André Allen Anjos co-wrote and produced every song on Strangers, which features an impressive array of guests including Alex Ebert (of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and 2014 Golden Globe winner for Best Original Score) Tegan & Sara, Penguin Prison, Tokyo Police Club, Katie Herzig, along with Bloc Party's Kele and rising electro-pop star MNDR, who both feature on "Let Go" the lead single that hit No. 1 on Hype Machine's Artist and Popular charts, and which Entertainment Weekly deemed "a dreamy end-of-summer pop concoction that will have you grooving well into fall". Strangers features album art by Lawrence Azerrad, who has also created cover imaging for Wilco, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jay-Z, and Brad Mehldau with photography by Andrew B. Myers.

Originally born and raised in Portugal to a Portuguese father and an American mother, RAC settled in Portland, Oregon, where he began to forge his unique brand of indie-pop by creating over 200 inventive remixes for Kings of Leon, Bob Marley, and U2 among many others. His remixes have reached No. 1 on the Hype Machine charts 26 times and his first solo recording, "Hollywood", featuring Penguin Prison hit No. 1 on all four Hype Machine charts at once, while his tracks have over 22 million Soundcloud spins. Tracks from his Don't Talk To EP, which was released in October, have been streamed over 5.5 million times.
