The Philadelphia-based artist and Frank Ocean collaborator is set to release his eighth album Rocket on Friday May 19 and has released two new tracks to celebrate.
'Sportstar' and 'Brick' represent each end of Rocket’s spectrum; 'Sportstar' features pitched-up vocals and a melancholy piano, while 'Brick' is best described as a hardcore screamer. The tracks showcase the diversity of (Sandy) Alex G’s latest release, his second album since signing with Domino in 2015.
(Sandy) Alex G tracked songs for Rocket between a hectic touring schedule across 2015 and 2016. Having previously self-recorded and self-released his music under the name Alex G, although he is equipped with a new moniker the singer maintains the DIY personality of his earlier work on this latest release.
Rocket by (Sandy) Alex G will be released on Friday May 19 through Domino Records and is available to preorder now.
