BROCKHAMPTON's Kevin Abstract has shown no signs getting away from his promise to fans "new music all summer." The burgeoning boy band returned Friday (July 27) with their latest single, continuing with the '90s theme for "1997 Diana," along with the Kevin Abstract-directed coinciding visual for the track.
"1997 Diana" arrived Thursday night with the conclusion their third episode Things We Lost in the Fire on Beats 1. The frenetic crew heads to the gym to expend some energy and show f their athletic ability courtesy Abstract's creative vision. The fresh tune's title seems to be be paying homage to Princess Diana, who was tragically killed in a car accident back in August 1997.
As the artistic collective works towards the impending release their anticipated THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES album, the 22-year-old Abstract has grand plans for the future. "I think I got like five more albums inside my mind/ This that shit, that do or die/ Make your grandmama cry," he raps on the hardwood the basketball court.
The All-American band's "1997 Diana" follows the successful releases "1998 Truman" and "1999 Wildfire," which are all expected to appear on BROCKHAMPTON's THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES album, slated to drop in 2018.
