Back in April, Danny Brown revealed plans for the follow-up to 2016’s Atrocity Exhibition and his fifth full-length studio album, uknowhatimsayin¿. Now, the Detroit emcee is formally detailing his upcoming LP and serving up a new single in support of it.

Notably, Danny Brown’s 2019 album uknowhatimsayin¿ will contain 11 new tracks, including collaborations with Run the Jewels, Blood Orange, JPEGMAFIA and Obongjayar; A Tribe Called Quest icon Q-Tip is also credited as its executive producer. Further promoting his next major release, the 38-year-old is sharing a Simon Cahn-directed video for one of its opening cuts, “Dirty Laundry.”

“This is my version of a stand-up comedy album,” Danny Brown shares via an official statement, breaking down uknowhatimsayin¿. “Most of my close friends now aren’t rappers—they’re comedians and actors. So I wanted to create something that mixed humor with music. Something that was funny but not parody.”

“There was no room for error,” Brown adds, opening up about his forthcoming project’s recording process. “Q-Tip wanted me to go back to that ‘Greatest Rapper Ever’ era. I almost had to relearn how to rap again—an ego death type thing. He gave me this whole new outlook on music. I can’t go back to how I was before.”

You can take a look at the music video for Danny Brown’s new single “Dirty Laundry” above, while his fifth studio album uknowhatimsayin¿ will see release on October 4 via Warp. uknowhatimsayin¿ is currently available for pre-order via iTunes, Spotify and other outlets.
