Ahead of the release of BROCKHAMPTON’s long-awaited fourth album the best years of our lives, we’ve gathered everything you need to know to get even more excited about the big drop. Now that the SATURATION trilogy is officially complete, it’s hard to predict what direction the boy band will head for the next chapter of their career.
BROCKHAMPTON recently endured a lot of changes from signing a major deal with RCA Records to removing one of its founding members after a series of abuse allegations surfaced online. On top of that, they have consistently dropped seasonal merchandise while going back and forth about upcoming projects.
Last week, BROCKHAMPTON launched a Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music called “THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE” so there are certainly a lot of moving parts for fans to keep track of. We’ve gathered all the details regarding the best years of our lives, scroll down for the full rundown.
Back in March, BROCKHAMPTON announced that their fourth full-length album would finally come out this year. Shortly after announcing that they had signed a record deal with RCA (with a little help from Jaden Smith), frontman Kevin Abstract shared the album’s release date on Twitter.
Following the abuse allegations against former member Ameer Vann, the group decided to push back the release. Since then, they have also altered the title of the project. While a drop date has yet to be confirmed, the album is expected to arrive this summer via QUESTION EVERYTHING/RCA Records.
BROCKHAMPTON switched the LP title from Puppy to the best years of our lives. While it’s not clear what prompted the change, this appears to be the final title (for now). BROCKHAMPTON previously had another album called Team Effort in the works, but they ultimately decided to shelve it for reasons unknown. The album artwork for the best years of our lives has not been revealed to the public at this time.
The official tracklist for the best years of our lives is still under wraps, but BROCKHAMPTON has been giving us a small taste of what to expect from the highly anticipated project. The boy band recently dropped “1999 WILDFIRE”.
Last month, they made their late night television debut on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and performed a brand-new song called “Tonya”. Both tracks will likely be included on the album.
