Pi'erre Bourne's The Life of Pi'erre 4 has been unleashed on streaming services.
The featureless 16-track project is the follow-up to 2016's The Life of Pi'erre 3 and sees the famously selective producer expanding his sonic prowess once again. As Pi'erre explained in a May interview with Complex, his selectiveness in collaborators and in-demand status has unfortunately resulted in certain Powers That Be going the copycat route when he expressed disinterest in a proposed collab.
"If they can't get ahold of me, everyone has really said, 'Fuck it,' and they'll go get a copy," he told Complex. "It's the ones that don't really know me—the ones that just need some beats—who I don't like working with. They just want whatever will make people click the most."
Speaking on the delay behind TLOP 4 in the same interview, Pi'erre pointed to sample issues and "a lot of bullshit" as the culprits.
"Everyone used to think I was crazy, off some conspiracy theory shit, but I really just be following my intuition," he said at the time. "If I feel it in my gut that something's wrong, something's wrong. To sum it up, I just needed to reevaluate who I had around me."
Stream TLOP 4 below via Apple Music. The project is also available on Spotify, Tidal, et al.
