Open Mike Eagle announces album with new song, “Bucciarati”

‘Anime, Trauma and Divorce’ comes out in October.

Open Mike Eagle has announced his new album Anime, Trauma and Divorce with “Bucciarati,” a new collaboration with Kari Faux.

The song’s title is a reference to Bruno Bucciarati, a mobster from the anime series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. Mike bares his emotions on the frank song, while Faux handles the chorus: “Sorry to call you in, I needed a helping hand / Broken the zip again, broken the zip again / Trying to fill up my bag to carry a couple grand.”

The track will appear on his upcoming album, Anime, Trauma and Divorce, due out October 16. The record will also feature collabs with Lil A$e and Video Dave, as well as the previously released singles “I’m a Joestar (Black Power Fantasy)” and “The Edge of New Clothes.”


In a press statement, Mike detailed how the album was conceived: “Before the world went to shit I was already in the middle of a few personal crises. Shit had gone haywire personally and professionally, and my therapist had to remind me that I have an outlet to process some of my shit in rap music. So I made a bunch of painful rap songs and [producer] Jacknife Lee was kind enough to help me make good music out of them.”

Anime, Trauma and Divorce will be Mike’s first solo-full-length since 2017’s Brick Body Kids Still Daydream. While you wait for the LP to drop, listen to “Bucciarati” below:
