After dropping two projects (including a collaboration with A$AP Ferg) in 2016, Yung Lean is coming off a big year. Still, the Stockholm artist seems ready to continue the wave in 2017, having made the recent announcement that he would be releasing a new album later this year. While the project has yet to secure a release date, Lean has officially shared the upcoming album’s first single, “Red Bottom Sky.” Even if you aren’t down with the whole “Sadboy” movement, it might be hard to resist the sheer beauty of Lean’s latest drop.
The song is a far cry from the off-kilter flow and lyricism of his earlier drops like “Kyoto,” instead relying on building an atmospheric, near-ambient soundscape. Lean foregoes rapping all together, bringing his vocal chops to the forefront and delivering a catchy, melancholic melody. In some ways, it’s an odd choice for a lead off single, but in many ways, it’s the perfect one.
“Red Bottom Sky” has clear crossover appeal, and the chorus is immediate enough to hook all manners listeners in, sad or otherwise. Plus, once Yung Lean slides into the verses, he manages to keep the sing-song melody floating while bringing out some of his trademark lyrics.
