AEW Announces 'Who We Are: A Celebration Of Excellence, Vol. 1' Album

To be released later this month

All Elite Wrestling announced plans to release an album today and 'Who We Are: A Celebration of Excellence, Vol. 1' will be released on Friday, February 18 on streaming platforms. A hard copy launch will also benefit the Bootsy Collins Foundation, with the funk icon providing an introduction for the album. 

The album will "bring to life the stories of more than twenty Black AEW wrestlers through the music of established hip-hop and R&B artists," AEW noted in a press release. The LP includes contributions from artists like Mega Ran and Josiah Williams, as well as AEW talents Max Caster and Sonny Kiss. 

AEW's in-house producer Mikey Rukus executive produced the album. 

"One key aspect of my role in AEW is to deliver a multifaceted audio experience for fans that delves into the essence of the characters they see on screen every week, as well as the stories behind the individuals who bring these characters to life. We Are is like a bunch of '30 for 30' episodes for AEW's Black wrestlers. Releasing this project during Black History Month in a format that is authentic to the culture and resonates in a familiar manner, while allowing these incredible talents to share their personal journeys, is special for everyone involved," Rukus said.
