Diaspora arrives on June 12th.

GoldLink is readying his next chapter.

The DMV dynamo has announced his second studio album, Diaspora, will drop on June 12th via RCA/Squaaash Club. The announcement is paired with the release of a new single, “Joke Ting,” featuring Ari Pensmith. It follows the lead single, “Zulu Scream,” which was released in mid-May. And if that wasn’t enough, he’s also launched his own Beats 1 Radio show, IFFY FM, airing at 12pm EST on Fridays.

It’s all pointing towards a hefty return for the elastic vocalist. His debut album, At What Cost, arrived in 2017, anchored by the Grammy-nominated anthem, “Crew,” and an extensive list of guest appearances from Steve Lacy, Kaytranada, Jazmine Sullivan, and more. Earlier this year, he addressed Justine Skye’s charges of domestic violence against Sheck Wes in a new song that was debuted on a COLORS Studios appearance. Skye appears on the cover of the upcoming album.
