To mark the “Mercury” drop, Lacy spoke with Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe for a discussion touching on what fans can expect from his upcoming sophomore album, due this summer. As Lacy explained to Lowe, fans can expect the 10-track album to showcase what he says is his “whole philosophy” on music at large.

“I don’t want to take people’s lives,” Lacy said of the album’s runtime. “I want them to make a decision to want to keep playing it again. I try my best to make my music to where you want to do that again. I produced about 90 precent of the record.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Lacy revealed the moment he was “tipsy” in a bar and ultimately came up with the new album’s title. Listen here for more.
