Listen to I Been Born Again, the first song from BROCKHAMPTON's new album
Catch them at FOMO Festival in January 2020, alongside a one-off Perth sideshow on Jan 10th.
August is shaping up to be a big month for BROCKHAMPTON. The "hardest working boy band in America" have blossomed into one of hip-hop's biggest and best acts, with a consistent stream of albums and mixtapes - the three-part Saturation trilogy and last year's major-label debut album iridescence the most significant and popular - setting them up as rap elites whose next move is always long-awaited. Now, however, they're stepping it up. This month - at a date yet-to-be-announced - they're scheduled to release their fifth album Ginger ("[The album is] feel-good," says the band's leader Kevin Abstract on the new album. "Not too sad and like, ‘Oh, our life sucks,’ just more like, ‘Just enjoy what’s in front of you."), before touring it this January in Australia, as they headline FOMO Festival and play a one-off headline sideshow at Perth's Belvoir Amphitheatre on January 10th.
Now, however, comes the album's first tease - I Been Born Again. Largely centred around Kevin Abstract, Merlyn Wood and Joba, I Been Born again sets an exciting tone of what's to come from Ginger and beyond, with whispering vocals opening a track built on thick bass kicks and the group's now-adored casual flow. There's more to come, but in the meantime, dive into the song's Spencer Ford-directed clip below, and find more information on FOMO 2020 HERE.
