In a remarkable transition from his journey with Brockhampton, Kevin Abstract is set to launch his new solo album, ‘BLANKET.’
This much-anticipated project comes after the release of ‘The Family’ and ‘TM,’ the final two albums from the rap group’s discography as they officially disbanded.
While ‘The Family’ is significantly driven by Kevin Abstract, earning it the label of a quasi-solo album, he’s now preparing to drop an official solo record very soon.
For those who have been following Kevin’s career, this is not his first foray into solo work. Prior to Brockhampton’s meteoric rise to fame, he released the conceptually rich ‘American Boyfriend’ in 2016. The album resonated with rap fans due to its honest storytelling and even spawned the hit track, “Empty.”
Following this success, he unveiled ‘ARIZONA BABY’ a few years later, a project that saw the light of day a few months before Brockhampton’s return with the critically acclaimed album ‘GINGER.’ Notably, ‘ARIZONA BABY’ also produced Kevin Abstract’s biggest hit as a solo artist, “Peach.”
Now, after a four-year period during which he diversified his creative pursuits, Kevin Abstract is ready to re-engage with his solo career, and fans couldn’t be more thrilled. The announcement of ‘BLANKET’ arrived on Twitter with an understated post. In it, he unveiled the album cover and offered a succinct caption that read, “BLANKET Nov 03.”
In response, the post quickly garnered the excitement and support of fellow musicians, with artists like Daniel Caesar, Midwxst, and former Brockhampton member hk expressing their eagerness for the project. Fans have also demonstrated their anticipation, as the post gathered over 30,000 likes within just a few hours.
‘BLANKET’ is poised to be a significant release in Kevin Abstract’s solo career, marking his return to the spotlight after Brockhampton’s final chapter. The album is scheduled to drop on November 3, promising an exciting new direction for this versatile and talented artist.
