WATCH: EarthGang Help TOKiMONSTA Announce New Album with “Fried for the Night” Video
Oasis Nocturno will be out March 20 via the producer’s own Young Art Records, preceding a U.S. tour.
Three years ago, TOKiMONSTA overcame a rare brain condition leaving her unable to speak or write to give us one of the most interesting instrumental hip-hop releases of the decade, earning her a Grammy nom and plenty of festival slots. Today she’s announcing that she’ll be following up that feat with Oasis Nocturno, her fourth studio album, set to be released March 20 via her own Young Art Records.
The announcement arrives with a stunning visual for the first single, a collaboration with ATL weirdos EarthGang called “Fried for the Night,” aptly recreating the moment the edible hits at a party. “Everyone has a moment where they feel fried and burnt, but what about those moments you feel fried and turnt?” TOKi offered in a press release. “EarthGang brought their special magic to the studio and we made something otherworldly. This song is dedicated to those psychedelic moments where our reality opens up a new point of view.”
The album will precede a set of U.S. dates where the producer will be unveiling a new live experience with lighting and stage design by Ross Chapple and visuals by Strangeloop Studios, who’ve worked with Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar. Pre-sale tickets for select shows go on sale Tuesday, January 21, while general tickets will be available Friday, January 24—you can grab those here, and see all dates below the video.
