Before he heads out on the road for the "Elements" Tour next month, B.o.B. decides to come through today and release his first studio album in four years called ETHER.
Laced with 12 tracks in total, the follow up to last year’s Elements series features guest appearances from several big named artists, including Lil Wayne, Young Thug, T.I., Big K.R.I.T., Ty Dolla Sign, Usher, Cee-Lo Green, Young Dro, and more. Meanwhile, production is handled by the likes of Murda Beatz, 30 Roc, Zaytoven, Southside, Benny Blanco, and Cashmere Cat among others.
“It’s about balance these days,” says Bobby Ray. “If you look at my career, there’s been a story arc. On The Adventures of Bobby Ray, Bobby goes on an adventure. He smokes some Strange Clouds afterwards. Then, he goes to the nightclub and does urban music in Underground Luxury. He takes some psychedelic mushrooms, has an awakening, and drops conscious projects like Psycadelik Thoughtz. Now, I want to take everything and have fun in this culmination called ETHER. I’ve always believed knowledge plus experience equals wisdom. The experience is kicking in.”
Available on iTunes, fans can now stream the body of work in its entirety via Apple Music. Hit play and let us know record you’re feeling the most?
