Along with the announcement came the first single from the project, “OhSh,” which happens to feature a very amusing appearance from comedian Hannibal Buress.
“I ain’t got no fur coat but I got a book bag full of Merlot / I drink whiskey but I do want a fur coat,” Buress begins his guest verse with. Trust us, you’ll want to hear the rest of it, which is followed up by an incredible verse from Grae.
Out March 30 via Mello Music Group, Everything’s Fine will also include appearances from Anna Wise, Michael Che, Nick Offerman, John Hodgman, and Your Old Droog.
Last year Okayplayer spoke with Chris about his most recent album, Being You Is Great, I Wish I Could Be You More Often, and how he refrained from making it about Donald Trump.
“There is time for all that. I think for this one, it started before and was done before a lot of people were awakened to the realization that there was a lot more going on in this country than people were willing to accept,” Chris said. “I am from the Midwest, I know this forgotten Middle America and I spent a lot of my life dealing with that. I think a lot of people didn’t really realize it existed.”
“But anyway, the reason I didn’t really tackle a lot of that stuff was because this album has its own intention,” the rapper continued. “By the time shit had hit the fan, the project was already done. There was also a part of me that was like, ‘Shit. Now, I gotta give people a whole album of self-reflection and self-worth.’ There are other things going on in the album, too. You can’t fight a war unless you gear up and get your heart in the right place.”
