Last month, Brockhampton also shared the trailer for new docuseries Keeping The Band.
The show will provide an unfiltered look at life within the hip-hop band, with one trailer providing footage of live performances being contrasted against dramatic backstage rows.
In a four-star review of ‘Ginger’, NME wrote: “Across ‘Ginger’, Brockhampton push themselves forward gently in musical terms. ‘Boy Bye’ is a carnival-like thing with a spellbinding lead line and freewheeling verses from every member swirling around, and this spirit is continued on the album’s highlight, its title track.
‘Ginger’ is the sound of the lyrical weight of ‘Iridescence’ being forcibly lifted off the band, with auto-tuned melodies floating around a catchy, snappy beat. It’s utter bliss.
Speaking to NME for their Big Read interview, Brockhampton’s Kevin Abstract said that the collective had attempted to make “a summer record” with ‘Ginger’ but found themselves being affected by the current state of Donald Trump’s America.
