Action Bronson has shared “Golden Eye,” a reggae-tinged preview of his upcoming album Only For Dolphins.
The track follows Bronson’s “Latin Grammys,” which will also appear on the record. In a press release, the New York native explained his inspiration behind the album’s title: “The dolphin is one of the most intelligent creatures ever created on whatever planet we’re on. They have their own way of communicating. They have nuance and intangibles like we do,” he said.
“The only people who understand me are those five-tool [baseball] players, those higher beings who are on the same telepathic wave as me.”
Only For Dolphins will include 12 tracks and feature assists from Meyhem Lauren, Hologram and Yung Mehico. On the other hand, production will be handled by The Alchemist (who collaborated with Bronson on the 2019 EP Lamb Over Rice), DJ Muggs, Harry Fraud, Daringer, Tommy Mas and Samiyam, as well as Bronson himself.
To accompany the album release, the rapper will also launch a line of merch featuring his own signature scent called Splash, toy dolphins, an ice cream flavor and an ice cream cake.
“I get inspiration from all around the world and I make what I want,” Bronson proclaimed in his statement. “I wanted to make sure that I hit everything on this project. We’re giving you the auditory. We’re giving you the visual. The olfactory. Your taste buds. There isn’t a physical sensation that Only For Dolphins doesn’t cover.”
Only For Dolphins is set to arrive on September 25 via Loma Vista Recordings. Check out “Golden Eye” below:
