Danny Brown announced that his follow-up to last year’s impressive XXX mixtape would be called ODB. Now, in a new interview with Pitchfork, he confirms that the album will be titled Old. Unlike XXX, it will be made for sale. It is currently 75 percent done and in the mixing stage.
Danny says that this album will show his mature side. “If people are just looking for dick-sucking jokes, there isn’t too many of them this time.” He also is waiting on a couple of guest features from notable artists including A$AP Rocky, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Kitty Pryde and Purity Ring.
On the production side, longtime collaborators SKYWLKR, Paul White, Darq E Freaker, Oh No, and Glasgow producer Rustie are set to appear on the album. “He’s actually the guy that ended the album, to be honest,” Brown says. “I was kind of stuck, and through a stroke of God, he emailed me and said, ‘Yo, I want to submit you some tracks for the album.’ I thought I was done, but I knew I needed a little more flair. He sent me seven beats, and I ended up using three of them.”
