The Impossible Kid
This self-produced set is the alt-rapper's seventh album and first since 2012's Skelethon. The new album once again finds Aesop working with the experimental Philly outfit Grimace Federation, and is preceded by a Funny or Die series.
The Toronto rapper's long-in-the-works Views From the 6 album finally surfaced on Friday (with a last-minute title change) as a temporary Apple Music/iTunes exclusive, though it may be available elsewhere as soon as Friday, May 6. Rihanna, Future, Kanye West, and Jay-Z appear on the 20-track album, while West is also among the many producers. A tour (with Future) is set for the summer.
After releasing a pair of album with Underworld's Karl Hyde in 2014, Brian Eno returns to solo work for his first time since 2012's Lux. The Ship is inspired by events of World War I as well as the sinking of the Titanic, and includes a cover of The Velvet Underground's "I'm Set Free."
