A little over one year after teaming up with Toro Y Moi for the joint EP TORO ROME VOL. 1, Rome Fortune is revealing plans for his next major studio album and introducing the project by releasing its lead single. Known as FREEktales, Rome Fortune’s upcoming LP will showcase a new, forward-thinking form of music and sub-genre known as “hood funk.” For our first taste of FREEktales and its unique style, Rome Fortune is serving up a new visual and track, “Ethan Hawke.”

“I believe we’ve reached peak trap and the vibrations are shifting towards groove,” Rome Fortune shares, breaking down his latest record and his new sound and sonic approach. “How many times can we see the same festival set of ‘3..2..1…Jump!!’ followed by water bottles being emptied into the crowd until we want something different. This single ‘Ethan Hawke’ is just something I feel is needed in this landscape of music. I know it’s what I need at least.”

You can take a look at the Sean Kelly-directed music video for Rome Fortune’s new single, “Ethan Hawke,” above. Rome Fortune’s next full-length studio album, FREEktales, is scheduled to see release on October 11 and is currently available for pre-order via iTunes and Apple Music. FREEktales will deliver ten new songs, including today’s offering and collaborations with Toro Y Moi and Telli.
