Tom Shimura better known in hip hop circles as Lyrics Born leaked a new track from his upcoming album recently on LBTV. The bay area rap veteran is working on a video for his new song "Funky Hit Records"and is currently touring from the Bay to Australia.

2009 is still in the new born stage and has just gotten started. But as for LB he looks like he will be taking full advantage of this year already with a new album and some touring too.

This month kicks off the first batch of LB shows in this new year as LB hits Northern California and Reno, NV for a 3-day run before leaving the Bay Area to once again play for the people down under in Australia.

Lryics Born's playing 3 dates there including Brisbane, Melbourne and finally Sydney, where he's appearing at the annual Playground Weekender Festival along with artists such as Primal Scream, Cold War Kids, Alice Russell and more!

The new tune, "Funky Hit Records", (which world premiered with a sneak preview not too long ago on LBTV) is one of about 6 songs LB has nearly completed for his upcoming new album, due in the fall of '09. LB talked about his new album recently on his website www.lyricsborn.com
He said, "I'm going in a very, very different direction with some of this new stuff, but it's still going to be a Lyrics Born record -- so you know it's gonna have the bangers!!" No album title yet for the project but he did say that he will be dropping a new video for the "Funky Hit Records" track very soon.
