UK drill star K-Trap has just announced his debut album, Smile?, and with it, the video for its lead single, “Old School Era”.

Co-produced by Nathaniel London and Jester Beats, the new track looks to Trapo’s roots for inspiration. Tapping into the drill sound of his earlier releases, it sets dark and moody 808s against a punchy, refined flow. “Old School Era” also comes with a glamorous, black-and-white video that puts the South London rapper at the head of the table at an extravagant black-tie dinner in a sprawling mansion.

Taking to Instagram, K-Trap says of the album: “People see you not smiling and can be quick to tell you to smile without fully knowing your story. I don’t give off much, but I’ve put a lot into this album. It’s not a sad story, it’s not a happy story, but once you hear it, you’ll defo know more about my transition, my journey, and who I am.”

In support of the album, K-Trap will also be heading out on tour once it drops. Beginning on September 1, he’ll be hitting Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, and London.

Ahead of the Smile?’s release on May 31, press play on the visuals for “Old School Era” above and be sure to add the song to your playlists.
