Blackbear fans had high expectations for the artist’s fifth studio album, Anonymous.
“It’s my best work to date, so do not sleep on this album,” he said during a January interview with Inked magazine. “It’s 18-plus songs and they’re all pretty damn good.”
The project was initially set to drop on Valentine’s Day 2019, but was presumably postponed for finishing touches.
“Anonymous may be pushed because I signed to a label and it has to be perfect,” Blackbear wrote on Instagram back in December. “It has to be perfect […] bout to start dropping it without permission.”
Since then, Blackbear has dropped off a number of singles from the 18-track project, including “1 Sided Love,” "High1x,” “Swear to God,” and “Dead to Me.”
You can listen to Anonymous now on Apple Music/iTunes and Spotify.
The album’s supporting tour will kick off May 17 in Seattle, followed by stops in Dallas, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, and Las Vegas.
