After months of teasing, Mick Jenkins has officially announced his next album, Pieces of a Man, will arrive on October 26th via Cinematic Music Group.
The announcement arrives with the dreamy twang of the new single, “Understood,” produced by longtime collaborator Kaytranada, who also matched the Chicago rapper’s rapid-fire release with a smooth soul chop on the previous single “What Am I To Do.” Pieces of a Man follows Jenkins’ 2016 studio album, The Healing Component, and the Soundcloud-exclusive series, or more. The new track is fit with a visual accompaniment that charts the exchange between generations of fathers and sons, directed by Nick Walker.
Watch the video for “Understood” up top and hear the single in this week’s installment of The Round-Up below. Hold tight for the next transmission.
