Yung Lean Announces New Album “Starz”


Though many initially deemed Sweden’s Yung Lean to be a meme rapper, it soon became evident that there was a unique and gifted artist lurking within. Even the skeptics found themselves converted by 2017’s Stranger, a whimsical and occasionally beautiful take on a hallucinogenic fairy tale. And while his follow-up project Poison Ivy wasn’t regarded as highly, Lean has remained an interesting artist to watch, especially given the exciting ways he continues to evolve.

Set to arrive on May 15th, Starz is largely a solo showcase, with the sole guest appearance coming from critical darling Ariel Pink. As of now, we’ve already had a chance to hear both “Pikachu” and “Violence,” released as a two-part video; should you be so inclined, check them out right here
