Lil Yachty’s first new studio album in three years has arrived.
The release of Let’s Start Here was preceded by the rollout of a suspenseful skit in which the artist was depicted strolling into a facility deemed “the Department of Mental Tranquility.”
Stream Let’s Start Here below via Spotify. When unveiling the cover art this week, Yachty thanked fans for their patience when pointing to what he’s billing as a “second chapter.”
Yachty also shared visuals for “Say Something,” which you can watch below.
Last October, Yachty scored a massively ubiquitous hit in the form of the decidedly brief “Poland,” which saw him warping his voice in a unique fashion that kept the song on constant rotation for millions of listeners. During a subsequent appearance on the ZIAS! YouTube channel, Yachty provided some insight on the track’s hook, namely its reference to Poland. According to Yachty, that portion of the track was actually inspired by seeing someone who was “just drinking a Poland Spring water bottle” in the studio.
“Poland” appropriately wound up being ranked by Complex among the best songs of 2022.
Later this year, fans can expect to see Yachty make a guest appearance on the sixth season (a.k.a. “Season 666”) of The Eric Andre Show. Yachty was confirmed in an Adult Swim announcement last May and will be joined by Tinashe, Jon Hamm, Diplo, Natasha Lyonne, Raven-Symoné, Rico Nasty, Meagan Good, Cypress Hill, and more.
