ASAP Rocky confirms the release date for his upcoming LP, drops new music and the album art
On May 7, ASAP Rocky took part in an in-depth public conversation, as part of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival in New York. During the conversation he announced that his sophomore album At.Long.Last.A$AP will be released in less than a month, on June 2.
He also premiered a new song, Everyday, which features Rod Stewart and Miguel and production by Mark Ronson. The track samples Python Lee Jackson’s 1970 release, In A Broken Dream, which features vocals by Rod Stewart.
Listen to Everyday featuring Rod Stewart, Miguel and Mark Ronson, below.
The production of the song is amazing, Mark Ronson has turned a 1970s hit into a current, hip-hop dream. Rod Stewart and Miguel grace the chorus with their soulful voices, while a cocky Rocky keeps it gritty in the rap verses, with lyrics like “and only God can judge me and he don’t like no ugly/ I look so fucking good most dykes’ll fuck me, buddy”.
ASAP Rocky revealed the album cover (above, right) for the new album earlier today, on Instagram. The cover pays tribute to the late A$AP Mob founder, A$AP Yams, who had a birthmark under his right eye and a cross tattooed under his left.
ASAP also unveiled new song, M’s, when he hopped on the lecture couch for Red Bull Music Academy’s UK tour last month. With all the tracks that Rocky has released in the run-up to At.Long.Last.A$AP, Everyday is possibly the first song that will actually be on his upcoming album.
