Yung Lean has dropped his new mixtape Stardust, which features a number of high-profile collaborations.
Featuring appearances from FKA twigs, fellow Swedish rapper Ant Wan, and Lean’s Drain Gang collaborators Bladee, Thaiboy Digital, and Ecco2k, Stardust sees the artist continue to experiment. On the production side of things he’s tapped in with Skrillex, Jack Donaghue of Salem, and his usual roster of producers including Whitearmor, Woesum, and Ssaliva.
To coincide with the release of the project, Yung Lean also shared a lo-fi, Aidan Zamiri-directed video for his FKA twigs collab “Bliss.” The two ride around in a car reminiscent of the Cadillac that Isaac Hayes’ character in Escape from New York drives, complete with chandeliers dangling from the front. The clip also features a reference to when Kelly Rowland appeared to text Nelly using Microsoft Excel in the “Dilemma” video.
Stardust serves as a follow-up to Lean’s 2020 album Starz, which was originally set to feature Playboi Carti before the rapper’s label didn’t clear his verse for undisclosed reasons.
