A spoken word album recorded by late Deftones bassist Chi Cheng will be released posthumously in 2021.

The set, titled The Head Up Project, was recorded during a live 2001 performance in Deftones’ hometown of Sacramento, California.

The Head Up Project is being released by Buckle Up Chi, a seat belt advocacy group formed in honor of the musician following his death. Cheng was involved in a serious car accident in 2008 which left him in a semi-comatose state. He died in 2013.

Deftones’ current bassist, Sergio Vega, joined in 2009. The group released their latest album, Ohms, in September. Just last week, they dropped Black Stallion, a remixed version of their 2000 album White Pony.
