    Vince Staples released his new EP, Prima Donna, last Friday. It features tracks produced by James Blake and an appearance by Andre 3000 and a variety of other all stars. Today, he has released a short 10-minute film to accompany the new record.

    Directed by famed music video director Nabil, who has made videos for Kanye West, FKA Twigs, Bon Iver, and a slew of others in the past, the Prima Donna short begins with Staples shooting a video for the album's final track "Big Time". That's only the beginning of the journey, which goes on to include a shabby cab, a two-star hotel, and much more. It delves deep into the more macabre nature of Staples, as well as the more hallucinatory.

    Yesterday, it was announced that Staples, along with Moses Sumney, would be joining James Blake on his upcoming U.S. fall tour. Staples will be joining the English singer-songwriter-producer for three dates, including an October 3rd show at New York City's Radio City Music Hall and two shows on October 20th and 21st at Los Angeles' Hollywood Palladium. Moses Sumney will appear at the New York City gig, but not at the two Los Angeles shows.

    Last year, Staples released his debut LP Summertime '06. The album cracked the U.S. Billboard 200's Top 40, reaching number 39 on the charts. It also was listed in the top 10 of many critic's year end lists, and has received widespread acclaim from critics.
