The legendary producer preps a compilation with his favorite collaborators.
Alchemist has announced that his next album, Yacht Rock 2, will release on August 30. While the first installation in the series - released in 2013 - was only a two-track EP, Yacht Rock 2 will boast a whole twelve tracks of Al and his friends. The tracklist includes his frequent collaborators, like Action Bronson, Meyhem Lauren, Roc Marciano and Westside Gunn.
Given the theme of the Yacht Rock series, expect a beachy, blissful sound. Alchemist tweeted at the end of last month that this project will "[RULE] THE SUMMER" and we don't doubt him. While Alchemist revealed the cover in an Instagram post of what appears to be a photo of the LP, the vinyl pre-order is not yet available in his Bandcamp store. However, all you vinylheads should be on the lookout for it because his records tend to sell out. The 500 copies of his last release - the excellent Schoolboy Q collaboration, "W.Y.G.D.T.N.S." - are all gone.
