(October 4, 2023) – After his surprise intimate performances in New York last night and Los Angeles last week, Kevin Abstract marks his official return to his solo career. With the release of his new single, “Blanket,” via Video Store/RCA Records, Abstract sets the tone for this next phase of his storied musical career. The single arrives with an accompanying video co-directed by Kevin Abstract and Cole Bat. “Blanket” serves as a taste for this new chapter of Kevin Abstract’s career and sees him breaking new sonic ground – a marked change from both his work in BROCKHAMPTON and his two solo albums to date. Fans who witnessed the full-band performances in New York and Los Angeles saw evidence that “Blanket” is not a red herring, but indicative of what’s to come from Kevin Abstract in this new era.
The new music comes on the heels of last week’s announcement of his return to his solo career, showcased through a teaser video named “Sleepover” that features a child alone playing video games at a sleepover with his imaginary friends and includes a snippet of today’s single. Later this Fall, Abstract will be performing at Camp Flog Gnaw in Los Angeles.
