Stream Yung Lean’s new album, ‘Stranger’
Yung Lean releases his highly anticipated third album Stranger. The album arrives via Stockholm-based label YEAR0001. Stranger was produced by GUD and Yung Sherman, the chief architects of the “emotional sound” and Lean’s fellow Sad Boys members, along with White Armor of Drain Gang. Yung Lean’s most precise record to date, Stranger features highlights like the infectious “Red Bottom Sky”, hard-hitting “Skimask”, and the heart-wrenching “Agony.” With another unpredictable and sonically unmatched album, Yung Lean and the Sad Boys truly cement themselves as inimitable pioneers of electronic and hip-hop music.
Earlier this week, Yung Lean shared the Stranger short film which was directed by Suzie and Leo and featured unreleased songs from the album against a beautiful and stark Western backdrop. On Monday, album track “Metallic Intuition” was premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record on his Beats 1 radio show.
Yung Lean also spoke about Stranger in an interview published this week by Dazed. In the piece he says: “It felt like me, GUD, Sherman and White Armor were a band. The process of it was, like… I can’t even remember it, ’cause it was just having fun, basically. We were just creating, kinda like jamming, and then out of nowhere we had 14 songs.”
Yung Lean will celebrate Stranger’s release with an exclusive in-store show at London’s Rough Trade East on November 15th. On January 16th, following a European tour, Yung Lean will launch a 19 show North American tour.
