After a nearly 2 year Hiatus, rap collective BROCKHAMPTON returns with two new singles and announces their next album titled; “ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE” set to drop on April 9th.

The two singles are directly from their forthcoming record with the first being the electrifying “BUZZCUT” which includes the first ever credited feature from another artist for an in-album song that being Danny Brown. For the first ever guest feature on a BROCKHAMPTON song Danny Brown absolutely kills it. Kevin Abstract also delivers some very energetic and fun bars to start but it almost feels like the beat was made for Danny which I love because his style in my opinion fits in so perfectly with the boys since he offers that perfect contrast in sounds that was sorely missing since the departure of Ameer Vann back in 2018. Either way this is the hardest hitting BROCKHAMPTON song in a very long time. Also the music video is fucking bonkers you gotta check it out.

The Second Single titled “COUNT ON ME” is a lot more mellow than the previous track but it still offers some great and catchy choruses from Jabari and Shawn Mendes (another feature!). Features might be the new theme to this album since this song starts off with a guest verse from A$AP Rocky and has another verse from SoGoneSoFlexy who is a signed rapper under the collective’s record label VIDEO STORE. Although not as memorable as BUZZCUTT is I still believe it is a really good song you shouldn’t skip.

With this announcement, Kevin Abstract, who many view as the front man in the band also come on to twitter to let everyone know that these next two albums coming from BROCKHAMPTON in 2021 would be their last.

Although we’ve heard this before with the release of Saturation III way back in 2017, it does seem somewhat likely that this might be true this time as their 3 year deal with RCA is set to end after 2021. However when they signed this deal back in 2018 they also signed for 6 Albums and we’ve only seen 2 of those albums so far (Iridescence and Ginger). It’s entirely possible that they renegotiated their deal to only 4 records but it does still raise the question; is this really it for the LA rap collective?
