After SZA releases her first album in five years this Friday (12/9), Ab-Soul will be delivering his first album in six years: Herbert on December 16th. His first full-length album since 2016’s Do What Thou Wilt., Herbert is shaping up to be his most personal work to date, and described as “leaving the conspiracy theories he’s known for behind while emphasizing his musicality.”
That new direction is reflected in the previous singles “Do Better,” “Moonshooter,” and “Gang’Nem.” An 18-track offering, Soulo will be assisted by a plethora of contributors on the album: Big Sean, Russ, Joey Bada$$, a reunion with Jhené Aiko, SiR, Punch, Zacari, Fre$h, Ambré, ALEMEDA, and Lance Skiiiwalker, with production from Sounwave, DJ Premier, James Blake, Hit-Boy, Boi-1da, DJ Dahi, and more.
No word on if that rumored Jay-Z feature is any one of those songs, but it could be a surprise (similar to Jay Electronica’s A Written Testimony). Until then, check out the official trailer for Herbert below and keep scrolling for a performance of “Do Better” on Vevo’s Ctrl series.
