All of the songs that we’ve heard so far from Angel Haze’s new project, Back To The Woods, have been pretty great, and there’s no reason to think that the whole thing won’t be just as good. “Impossible,” “Babe Ruthless,” and “Moonrise Kingdom” all showed off different sides of the budding young musician and, because their 2013 debut Dirty Gold had its fair share of label interference, you could almost view the new one as the first time we’ve seen Haze in full-throttle mode outside of a mixtape. The entire record was produced by Tk Kayembe, which means it sounds pretty cohesive, and it was put together over a particularly tumultuous year for Haze which involved a publicized breakup, addiction, and a trip to the psych ward.
Haze also hypes up their next release in an interview with Billboard: “The next record should be pretty crazy because I’m the new fucking Basquiat. I’m the new Frida Kahlo. I’m that shit. But instead of with a paintbrush, I have a microphone. I’m working to make something as visually beautiful and fucked up as I am. I think hopefully, it’ll come into fruition.” Until then, we have Back To The Woods — listen to it below.
