Aesop Rock is returning with a new album in 2016. On April 29, Aesop Rock will release The Impossible Kid via Rhymesayers. That’s the album art above. It’s his first set of new music since collaborating with The Moldy Peaches’ Kimya Dawson as The Uncluded in 2013. The album was produced by Aesop Rock, and features new single “Rings,” which he just released the video for. And it’s pretty trippy—the Rob Shaw-directed clip is a very literal trip inside Ian Bavitz’s head. There’s some cool stop-motion animation and other weirdness happening in the video, and for that matter, it’s a pretty badass song. Watch the Aesop Rock “Rings” video below.
The Impossible Kid follows 2012’s Skelethon.
