Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning artist Everlast returns with Whitey Ford's House of Pain, the rapper-singer-songwriter's first full-length studio album of original material in seven years (since 2011's Songs of the Ungrateful Living). The 15-song collection offers an eclectic stylistic sampling from throughout Everlast's nearly-three-decade-long journey.

There's the self-analytical "The Climb," a song which in part references his own defenses as well as his eight-year-old's ongoing battle with cystic fibrosis, one of the chief reasons behind the long gap between records. Watching her suffer fuels his anger and challenging of God's existence in album opener "One of Us," while the dirty delta blues of "Slow Your Roll" suggests a dark glimpse of a world and a growling vocal hook provided by Aloe Blacc, taking us back to Everlast's underground hip-hop roots.

The album's centerpiece, "Summer Rain," is a sprawling, cinematic, Beatles-meets-Tom Waits-meets Neil Young glimpse into the horrors of drug addiction, with "Dream State," co-produced by Alchemist, a sly stab at the back-stabbing treachery and Faustian pacts of the music business. Everlast also offers up a "Jump Around"-style party song in the rousing "Smokin' & Drinkin.'"

"I just used everything in the tool box," Everlast says about Whitey Ford's House of Pain, adding that his family's ordeal managing his daughter's illness has given him "a whole different license to learn how to live."
