The impressive nine-track project comes just months after the release of his debut Everybody's Cool But Me EP, which arrived last summer, and it includes his previously released Yung Pinch collab "No One Wants to Dance Anymore," released back in November.
"I wrote this EP about my coming of age experience in suburban Massachusetts," says Lenox, who has proven himself to be truly underrated in this industry. "I still go back there a ton, but things used to be more fun and less serious. As we're all getting older, I think a lot of people my age are feeling uniquely directionless. I don't know if this is the result of personal issues or if we've been totally screwed over generationally and are never really going to arrive at adulthood. That's the feeling I wanted to capture with this project."
After making a name for himself working behind the scenes producing for the likes of Travis Scott, Kanye West, Ty Dolla $ign, Teyana Taylor, Vic Mensa, Alessia Cara and others, Johan Lenox signed to Island Records last year and this new EP continues a steady, well-deserved rise in his solo career as a headlining artist.
To celebrate the EP's release, Lenox has shared a 21-minute accompanying short film. As with his previous videos, the new one is directed by Zach Bell.
