Open Mike Eagle has announced a new album, Anime, Trauma And Divorce. It’s the rapper’s first full-length album since 2017’s Brick Body Kids Still Day Dream, though he’s kept plenty busy since then.
“Before the world went to shit I was already in the middle of a few personal crisis’. Shit had gone haywire personally and professionally and my therapist had to remind me that I have an outlet to process some of my shit in rap music,” OME said of the album in a statement. “So I made a bunch of painful rap songs and Jacknife Lee was kind enough to help me make good music out of them. Maybe it can help other people too. It probably won’t but maybe.”
