Danny Brown releases new album ‘Atrocity Exhibition’ three days early

The Detroit rapper said he "couldn't wait any longer"

Danny Brown has released his fourth studio album, ‘Atrocity Exhibition’, three days before its scheduled arrival.

The new album features guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul and Earl Sweatshirt (all appear on lead single ‘Really Doe’), and is Brown’s first LP since 2013’s double-sided ‘Old’.

Although originally scheduled for release on September 30 (Friday), Brown has brought the date forward and made ‘Atrocity Exhibition’ available on all formats now.

The rapper made the announcement on Twitter, where he is currently doing a fan Q&A, saying that he couldn’t “wait any longer.”

Back in June, Brown revealed that he’d drawn influence for ‘Atrocity Exhibition’ from listening to Radiohead’s ‘A Moon-Shaped Pool’ and Talking Heads.

“I was listening to [Talking Heads] a lot; just studying,” Brown told Zane Lowe on his Beats One show. “I actually read about them before I [properly] started listening to their music – I’d heard a lot of their songs, but sometimes it was like stuff that you can’t really identify with. I really liked their approach and how they brought [‘Stop Making Sense’] to you visually is what I’m really intrigued by. David Byrne’s a legend, you know what I’m saying? I look up to people like that, and I’m trying to incorporate that into rap music.”
