‘Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine’ will arrive on April 9 via Question Everything/RCA Records.

In a follow-up tweet this evening, Abstract revealed that a new single is also due to drop tomorrow (April 1), which he described as having “summer time” vibes.

“Ride around with the windows down with ya best friend singing super loud to the chorus type vibe – shows the other side of the album,” he added.

According to a press release, ‘Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine’ will see Brockhampton working with a “wider group of collaborators for the first time” and is “equal parts braggadocio and empathy”.

The group previously released a new single called ‘BUZZCUT’, which features Danny Brown.

The release of ‘Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine’ will be marked by a special virtual show, which will be broadcast from the chapel at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La studio. The concert will take place on the same day the record is released. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.

Meanwhile, Abstract recently said he is “tired” of Brockhampton being labelled as a boyband.

“I think this is the first album where I’m really tired of this boyband thing,” he told the Guardian. “I don’t want us to be a boyband.”

He continued: “I feel like what we were trying to do we already did, with redefining [the term]. I just want to make music and let people call it whatever they want at this point. I don’t want to push this one thing.”
