On July 10, Aesop Rock will release his first solo album in nearly five years. Yes, it's been that long since he dropped the superb None Shall Pass. The deft rapper/producer has kept busy with various projects in the following years, including apocalyptic-rap trio Hail Mary Mallon and a joint album with singer-songwriter Kimya Dawson.

But on Rock's new album, Skelethon, the focus will remain entirely on him and we're better for it. At least, that's our impression after hearing the absolutely ill lead single, "Zero Dark Thirty." You can stream it below and check out the album artwork above this text.

Listen: Aesop Rock "Zero Dark Thirty"
