On Friday, Brockhampton announced their new Beats 1 show Things We Lost in the Fire Radio. Now, the boy band has dropped a new song and video, “1999 Wildfire.” The new track finds members of the group delivering rapid-fire rhymes over a flute-laced instrumental – it then transitions to a late ’90s/early ’00s R&B-style bridge. The song as a whole is sonically reminiscent of early-2000s Outkast. The video, directed by Kevin Abstract, features close-up shots of each member.
BROCKHAMPTON’s Beats 1 show will feature a new song each episode, along with favorite songs of each members, skits and interludes. BROCKHAMPTON are headed to Australia in September to play Listen Out festival and headline sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne.
Listen to the song and watch the video above. In late June, BROCKHAMPTON were the musical guests on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Before their performance, Fallon revealed that the name of their new album is the best years of our lives.
