kendrick lamar: After a long wait, Kendrick Lamar releases new album – Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers

Trends

The wait is finally over as Kendrick Lamar launches his new album “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers” . And we can finally say it was worth the wait. His return is nothing short of grand. Five years later to his Grammy winning and Pulitzer Prize earning “Damn”, he is back with a new album.

There are eighteen tracks divided evenly between the albums ‘Mr. Morale’ and ‘Big Steppers’. Lamar spends an hour and thirteen minutes taking his listeners through musical performance of piano riffs, out of place sound bites and baring soul to his fans.

Guest stars in the album include some famous names such as Kodak Black, Baby Keem, Ghostface Killah and some interesting cameos by actresses such as Taylour Paige and Portishead’s Beth Gibbons.

This album is the first release of Lamar’s imprint pgLang and his final collaboration with Top Dawg Entertainment which gave him the break and was his creative home for more than a decade. Playing the tracks on repeat is what your mind will tell you to do when you listen to Lamar’s new album. This might be one of the greatest musical performances that happened as yet.

Here’s a firsthand outlook on some of his new numbers.

Father Time – With a ravishing piano backdrop, this number is a rendition of how Lamar’s daddy issues always kept him in a competitive zone. There are also some big name drops in the songs which will make the fans go gaga.

Mirror – This is the most melodically cohesive song in the album in which he shows reflections of his life optimistically rather than looking at his life in remorse. As should everyone.

Silent Hill – The first two verses are sung by Lamar after which Kodak Black takes over for an epic end to this beautiful song. It has a very grooving beat to it.
