The short film is a Western featuring some familiar faces.

Back in 2013, British artist The Bullitts (Jeymes Samuel) released They Die By Dawn & Other Short Stories…, an album that featured appearances by Jay Electronica, Lucy Liu, Mos Def, Rosario Dawson and more. He’s continued that music-meets-film approach, directing a 50-minute film titled They Die By Dawn. “In a town with no rules, four outlaws play a deadly game. Murder and mayhem ensue,” according to its tagline.

The film features Erykah Badu, The Wire star Michael K. Williams, Breaking Bad baddie Giancarlo Esposito, Dawson and more, and it is streaming exclusively on Tidal.

The trailer and poster are below. For more on Tidal, check out Skinny Friedman’s thoughts on the new endeavor.
