With just a few weeks to go until the release of his The Answer LP, Mathematics drops his Prelude to the Answer mixtape. The 11-track tape below finds the Wu-Tang Clan associate getting the hype going and setting the scene for his follow-up to 2005’s The Problem.

Said Maths of the whole project,

“I'm excited about the album and can't wait for it to drop. I put a lot of time, sweat and energy into this project and hope that overall my musical growth and development reflect in the finished product.”

Listen to the Prelude below and look out for The Answer (currently up for pre-order at his bandcamp) on April 16.
