Open Mike Eagle has announced a new album. On October 16, he’ll release Anime, Trauma and Divorce via AutoReverse Records. The first single is “Bucciarati,” featuring Kari Faux. Hear it below. The album also features the previously released Adult Swim single, “I’m a Joester (Black Power Fantasy)”.
Mike says of the album in a press release, “Before the world went to shit I was already in the middle of a few personal crisis’. Shit had gone haywire personally and professionally and my therapist had to remind me that I have an outlet to process some of my shit in rap music. So I made a bunch of painful rap songs and Jacknife Lee was kind enough to help me make good music out of them. Maybe it can help other people too. It probably won’t but maybe.”
Anime, Trauma and Divorce follows Brick Body Kids Still Daydream, which was one of our favorite hip-hop albums of 2017.
