Kevin Abstract ambiguously posted three dates last week, fresh off the trails of dropping his new song ‘Big Wheels’, and true to the post, ‘ARIZONA baby’ came out on the 11th - just three tracks.
About his new project, Kevin says: "So many therapists in Hollywood. Maybe I should be spilling my life story to a stranger watching a clock, but I'd rather talk through music. You bring the audience along this journey where you both walk the line of not knowing what's real and what's fake. The duality of the American Dream. Everyone thinks I'm morally righteous because of a few headlines. Duality. Call your dad and tell him how he made you feel, Ian. This is the sweet spot between self discovery and celebration. The space beneath the circuit board of emotion. This is ARIZONA baby."
It is unclear right now whether this is an EP, a three track single, or if it’s part one of a full album which will be released in instalments - speculation among fans in rife!
Following the release of ‘Big Wheels’, producer Jack Antonoff posted the release dates to his story hinting that he was involved in the production - and he has indeed been credited on all three current ‘ARIZONA baby’ tracks with Romil Hemnani.
