Danny Brown drops new album three days early

Danny Brown didn’t quite pull a Beyoncé or Kanye West, but the eccentric rapper surprised his fans by releasing a new album — three days early.

Originally slated for a Friday release, Atrocity Exhibition is now available on Apple Music and Spotify. On Tuesday afternoon, the Detroit native tweeted, “Pushed the album up bruh bruh, couldn’t wait any longer - #AtrocityExhibition today!!!!”

The 15-track album — which features guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Earl Sweatshirt — is the rapper’s fourth studio album.

In August, Brown talked to EW about what influenced Atrocity (Curb Your Enthusiasm, for one) and how he has evolved as an artist since he released his last album three years ago.  

“At the time of my life, right now, I’m just all about being creative,” he said. “I’m here now, so I’ve just gotta stay here. And the way I stay here is just making the most far-out-there music I possibly can and pushing rap music forward, like being progressive with it, instead of just trying to do whatever’s hot at the moment.”
