Old is the anticipated new LP from Danny Brown, an emotionally-charged concept album as profound as it is profane. The 19 tracks are an intoxicating mix of Danny at his most experimental AND most accessible, balancing hip-hop grit with electronic club sonics and much, much more. Featuring guest appearances from A$AP Rocky, ScHoolboy Q, Freddie Gibbs, Purity Ring, Charli XCX, and more over production from the likes of A-Trak, Rustie, SKYWLKR and Paul White, Old is a psychedelic portrait of rap’s most vital and exciting new star.
The album will be streaming in full on Spotify 9/30, and available for purchase in stores and online 10/8. Head over to iTunes now and preorder Old to get two tracks for immediate download: “Side A (Old)” as heard in this teaser video, and “Kush Coma” feat A$AP Rocky and Zelooperz. Read More
