Music News, News

Danny Brown has detailed his forthcoming studio album uknowhatimsayin¿: The follow-up to 2016’s Atrocity Exhibition arrives October 4 via Warp. He’s also shared the LP’s lead single “Dirty Laundry.” It comes with a music video directed by Simon Cahn. Watch below.

In a press release, Danny Brown said, “This is my version of a stand-up comedy album.” He continued, “Most of my close friends now aren’t rappers—they’re comedians and actors. So I wanted to create something that mixed humor with music. Something that was funny but not parody.”

Q-Tip executive produced uknowhatimsayin¿. “There was no room for error,” Brown said. “Q-Tip wanted me to go back to that ‘Greatest Rapper Ever’ era. I almost had to relearn how to rap again—an ego death type thing. He gave me this whole new outlook on music. I can’t go back to how I was before.”

Other producers on uknowhatimsayin¿ include Paul White, Flying Lotus, Standing on the Corner, and JPEGMAFIA. There are also guest spots from Run the Jewels, JPEGMAFIA, Blood Orange, and Obongjayar. Check out the tracklist and uknowhatimsayin¿ cover art below.
