Brent Faiyaz has shared the new album Wasteland, his first full-length since debuting with Sonder Son in 2017.
Featuring guest appearances from Tyler, the Creator, Drake, the Neptunes, Joony, Alicia Keys, and Tre’ Amani, Wasteland is an expansive effort that sees Faiyaz at his most confident. Atop nocturnal, sparse production, he flaunts his smooth vocals and penchant for effortless hooks. He also finds time to experiment, including on “Ghetto Gatsby,” which features almost no percussion.
Even though it’s been five years since he unleashed his debut full-length, Brent did give fans a treat at the start of 2020 with Fuck the World, a 26-minute project. That’s not to mention the extensive lead-up to Wasteland, as he shared three tracks from the release last year. In 2021 he also made appearances on albums from Baby Keem, Tyler, the Creator, Tems, and Meek Mill.
