Brockhampton announces new 'Puppy' for release this summer
Question Everything, Inc/Empire

On March 20, Brockhampton founder Kevin Abstract announced via Twitter that the group will be releasing a new album this summer, but it’s not the one fans were expecting.

In a series of tweets, Abstract noted that the “Greatest Boyband in the World” is currently working on their fourth studio album which will be entitled Puppy. He further explained that Team Effort, the name of an album the group announced in Dec. 2017 for a 2018 release, won’t be coming out this year. Brockhampton’s Twitter account also revealed the cover art for Puppy, which features the same kind of mundane but slightly surreal imagery used in their Saturation trilogy.

Alternative hip-hop and R&B fans wishing to get a preview of the songs featured on Puppy should consider attending one of the band’s recently announced Stereo Spirit Tour. The group’s latest sojourn across the country will take them to venues in Boston, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, New York, Baltimore and Richmond, Va.’s own The National. The band might just debut what will be the next song of the summer during one of the forthcoming shows.
