Wait, didn’t he just release his Touch My Blood album a couple of months ago? Yes, yes his did. But Kiernan Forbes is not a man who likes to make us wait. During an exclusive interview with local website ZAlebs, AKA was overheard on a phone call to award-winning rapper Sjava and yes, it sounds like AKA is planning his next album.
AKA is Planning His Next Album
Here’s what we know, based on the phone call:
AKA is planning to create some kind of Kanye-esque “camp” where he can collaborate with artists and spend time getting creative. The Super Mega star is packing up his team and taking a few select creatives, including Emtee, out to Hertebeespoort for a 5-day creative retreat.
Remember when Yeezy was all about that Wyoming life? Even Kim and the kids were shipped out there while Kanye recorded his album Ye. The process resulted in the final sound on the albums on Travis Scott and Nas, a surprise-location album launch party and spawned a whole range of merch. Can we expect a range of “Hartebeespoort” hoodies?
Sounds like our man is serious about getting new music out. We love the idea of rounding up a few collaborators and getting out of the city to spent time creating, living off each other’s flow focussing on your craft. And we are super mega excited to hear what the next album sounds like.
Will AKA stick to his Afrobeat fusion trademark sound or is he inspired by something new?
