The announcement was teased over the past few days on Ty Dolla $ign’s social media pages, featuring animated interpretations of the artists fading into focus on each post. You can take a listen to the single below, which also makes use of animated visuals.
“‘Ego Death’ is a very special record,” said Ty. “It’s always an honor working with my brother ‘Ye. He’s a genius and we make incredible records every single time we link up. Skrillex and Twigs came in and blessed us with the magic that only they can put on the record. I played it once at a house party and everyone went crazy. A clip leaked online and shit but that’s all good.
“I just had to find the right time to put it out, so I’m excited that it’s finally THAT TIME! My new album is done and it’s coming very soon. Shout to my fans for being patient while I made sure it was perfect, it’s worth the wait…it’s my best work yet. I can’t wait for y’all to hear it!”
The song arrives a day after Kanye West’s new single, ‘Wash Us In The Blood’, featuring Travis Scott. The cut is taken from West’s forthcoming album, ‘God’s Country’.
Ty Dolla $ign’s last full-length release was 2017’s ‘Beach House 3’, with a deluxe edition arriving a year after. Since then, the artist/producer has collaborated with a swathe of artists, including J. Cole, Lykke Li, James Arthur and more.
Ty Dolla $ign also featured on Thundercat‘s latest album, ‘It Is What It Is’, paying tribute to the late Mac Miller on ‘Fair Chance’.
Earlier in May, Ty Dolla $ign collaborated with R&B singer Mahalia on multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier’s DIY-styled track, ‘All I Need’. The track premiered in late May on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
