Brockhampton’s New Album ‘Iridescence’ Is on the Way
After two album delays, Brockhampton's fourth studio album is finally coming out next month, although it will have a different title. Originally to be called Puppy, the group has now renamed the project Iridescence and will drop the album in September.
Brockhampton revealed the news on Twitter on Sunday (Aug. 26), posting a colorful photo. "Brockhampton's 4th Studio Album Will Be Released This September," the picture reads. "Iridescence Made In London."
News of the new album comes after the group originally stated they would be dropping the record Team Effort in 2018. Brockhampton then delayed Team Effort and announced they would be releasing Puppy instead. The album was set for a mid-2018 release but following allegations of sexual assault against former member Ameer Van, Puppy was delayed.
Ameer Van has since been kicked out of the group and the members of Brockhampton apologized for not taking action sooner. "We want to sincerely apologize to the victims affected by Ameer's actions. We were lied to, and we are sorry for not speaking up sooner. We do not tolerate abuse of any kind. This is not a solution to their suffering, but we hope this is a step in the right direction," they wrote in a statement.
Earlier this year, Brockhampton signed a deal with RCA Records reportedly worth $15 million. The deal with the label also reportedly covers all members of the group. Following the signing, Kevin Abstract assured fans that the signing would not change the group's signature sound and style.
