Prepare yourself for a new record from the “best boyband since One Direction”, with BROCKHAMPTON today announcing the details of their upcoming studio album, Ginger.

Just last week, BROCKHAMPTON dropped their latest single, ‘If You Pray Right’. Coming just one week after ‘I Been Born Again’, it was clear that we were getting closer and closer to album number five.

Revealing that their new record would be out sometime in August, fans were wondering if we would soon be receiving that long-awaited release date in the near future.

Now, the delivery of a brand new song has seen the group reveal that their new album, Ginger, will officially drop on August 23rd.

Releasing ‘Boy Bye’ today, the new song is a little bit bouncier than some fans might have expected, but still features those gorgeous vocals and beats we’ve come to know and love, all backed by a visually-stunning video made by Spencer Ford.

In regards to the new record’s sound, leader Kevin Abstract recently explained he wanted to make a “summer album” likely inspired by Outkast.

“We want to make a summer album. Feel-good. Not too sad and like, ‘Oh, our life sucks,’ just more like, ‘Just enjoy what’s in front of you’,” Abstract explained.

“Something we’re doing is putting those type of lyrics — like this shit is trash, anxiety, depression, all that stuff — taking those type of lyrics and putting it on a song that a bunch of people could dance to or something. It’s just like ‘Hey Ya!’ My favorite song ever. It’s basically that.”

In related news, BROCKHAMPTON were recently revealed as the first act of a stacked FOMO 2020 lineup, which will hit Aussie shores this January, and will see the group performing a special sideshow in Perth while they’re in town.
