Ab-Soul has shared his new album Herbert via Top Dawg Entertainment.

It’s the first time the Los Angeles rapper has released a record in six years. Herbert boasts appearances from Joey Badass, Big Sean, Jhené Aiko, Russ, Fresh, Ambré, ALEMEDA, and TDE’s SiR, Punch, Zacari, and Lance Skiiiwalker, plus production by DJ Premier, Sounwave, James Blake, Hit-Boy, Boi-1da, and DJ Dahi, among others.

Soul recently told Rolling Stone he hopes Herbert can help listeners work through trauma. “We’re all going through things, all of us,” he said. “Me sharing my testimony—if it doesn’t help, it might let you know you’re not the only one going through it. That’s what ultimately gives me the courage to put it out there.”

The video for “FOMF” also arrived on Friday, directed by Omar Jones and Onda:
