U.S. hip-hop collective and self-proclaimed boyband BROCKHAMPTON are well and truly back in business, having just dropped ‘1997 DIANE’, their third single from (presumably) their upcoming album ‘The Best Years of Our Lives’.
‘1997 DIANE’ debuted last week on ‘Things We Lost in the Fire’, the group’s Beats 1 show, which also premiered the similarly-titled tracks ‘1998 TRUMAN’ and ‘1999 WILDFIRE’ earlier this month. The song is a short, sharp banger, with Matt Champion, Kevin Abstract and Dom McLennon trading verses over an exhilarating instrumental. As is tradition with the group, the single was accompanied by a music video, which features the group going crazy in a gym.
Another track – ‘Don’t be Famous’ – was also played during last week’s episode of the group’s show. Group leader Kevin Abstract confirmed in a since deleted Tweet that this was an unfinished version of the song that was put together specially for the show.
With three singles, a Jimmy Fallon performance and a demo all in the last two months, it’s safe to say that BROCKHAMPTON season is well and truly upon us.
