Almost a year after Lil Peep passed away his sophomore album will finally see the light of day. Come Over When You’re Sober Pt. 2 is officially slated to drop on November 9 via the GothBoiClique label Autnmy which is part of Access Records and Columbia Records. Along with the announcement, a Max Beck-directed music video for the lead single “Cry Alone” has been released. The footage was originally shot last year in San Francisco.
As expected, the posthumous project was produced by Peep’s closest friends and collaborators Smokeasac and George Astasio of IIVI. Despite the emotional challenge of working on it without Peep, the producers still managed to finish on behalf of the late rapper and his loyal fan base.
“Gus was my best friend. Finishing ‘COWYS2’ without him is the hardest thing I have ever had to do,” Smokeasac said in a press release. “At times I didn’t want to finish it, some days it was just too hard to hear his voice and not have him right there beside me but when I got out of my own head, I could feel him there and that and his incredible fans are what got me through it. I really had no choice, it had to be done and I am proud of what George and I have done for Gus and his fans.”
Peep’s mother, Liza Womack also included a statement in the press release about how the record is a “powerful collection of songs” that represents a “labor of love.”
“Because Gus had such an indominable work ethic, and commitment to getting things right, we are blessed with another chance to hear his voice—interwoven with the production of two of his trusted music collaborators,” she said. “I am grateful to them for shouldering through in order to finalize the work.”
Sarah Stennett, co-founder and CEO of First Access Entertainment described Peep as “one of the greatest poets and musicians of a generation” and believes that “the presence of his spirit” guided them all to complete this album. A mural for Lil Peep is currently underway at outside Ideal Glass in New York. Tonight, SONY will host a a private listening event in collaboration with Lil Peep’s estate and management.
