Brockhampton may release their “last” album this year

They’ve also dropped new song “Count on Me” from ‘Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine.’

Brockhampton may call it quits after dropping another album after the upcoming Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine.

The group’s frontman Kevin Abstract recently ended his year-long Twitter hiatus on March 31 to tweet “2 brockhampton albums in 2021 – these will be our last.”

Though fans have reacted with dismay to the news, this also isn’t the first time Brockhampton have threatened to retire. Back in 2017, the group said Saturation III would be their “last studio album,” but went on to release two more projects thereafter.

Brockhampton have also unveiled the cover art and tracklist for Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine, the first of the band’s two forthcoming albums. The 13-track effort will feature JPEGMAFIA, A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, SoGone SoFlexy, Charlie Wilson and Baird, as well as Danny Brown on the previously released “Buzzcut.”

Later this month, Brockhampton will also give a live performance from Rick Rubin’s famous Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, which Abstract called “a concert from the future.” He added: “Very excited for our live show coming up. We’ve been rehearsing like crazy for it. And we were able to shoot on anamorphic lenses with an Alexa mini. It will play more like a movie.”

Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine is due out April 9. It will mark the group’s first full-length output since their critically acclaimed 2019 LP, Ginger.

Its latest single is the mellow, melodic “Count on Me.” Abstract had teased the song in a now-deleted tweet that said the new single exudes “summer time vibes” and “shows the other side of the album.” Hear it below:
