[New York, NY – August 15, 2019] After announcing their fifth studio album earlier this month, last night BROCKHAMPTON announced the release date and shared a new song and video. GINGER will arrive August 23rd via Question Everything/RCA Records and includes previous releases “IF YOU PRAY RIGHT,” “I BEEN BORN AGAIN” and new track “BOY BYE” which they released last night with a Spencer Ford-directed music video.
The announcement arrives in the midst of the band’s live debut in Japan where they’ll play at Summer Sonic Festivals in Tokyo and Osaka and follows the announcement of their performance at Tyler, The Creator’s 8th annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival where they will play alongside Solange, YG, and Tyler himself. Earlier this year, the boyband made a triumphant return to the stage at Governor’s Ball which launched a run of summer festival dates. This spring saw the release of Kevin Abstract’s critically acclaimed solo album ARIZONA BABY. Following the album’s release, the group’s founder discussed his art, personal growth, and the future of BROCKHAMPTON in GQ’s first ever Pride digital cover story.
GINGER is the next chapter of BROCKHAMPTON’s rapid rise over the last two years. Following the release of their first 3 studio albums in 2017, the boyband’s first major label album, iridescence, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and R&B/Hip-Hop charts last year. The group also toured the globe extensively in 2018, including a run of 5-star reviewed, sold-out European tour dates, a sold-out tour of Australia and New Zealand, and a successful North American tour highlighted by a sold-out three-night residency at New York’s Terminal 5 and a sold-out two-night residency at Los Angeles’ The Shrine.
