Brockhampton dropped their new album The Family on Thursday, and a follow-up full-length, TM, arrived at midnight Friday.
The group confirmed they would be going on hiatus earlier this year, and they called The Family their “final album” in the lead-up to its release. Offering closure with lyrics that tackle the rise of the group and what led to their eventual split, the record is a bittersweet farewell to Brockhampton as a whole.
While it is the final material Brockhampton worked on, The Family proved not to be the end quite yet. Predominantly a Kevin Abstract solo release produced by Bearface and boylife, the drop was followed by TM. Described as a “parting gift for fans,” the second record was executive produced by Matt Champion and consists of material they worked on over two weeks in Ojai, California in 2021.
Alongside The Family, Kevin detailed the decision to have the record be a solo affair. "I understand that some of the fans are upset that no one is on the album but me. Over the past few years, the members of the band began to move our separate ways, and focus on our individual careers and passions,” wrote Kevin in a statement about the end of the band. “With this project, a few of us were inspired to make something new that would bring closure to the past, and set the table for all of us to finally be able to explore our individual futures. I hope you understand and enjoy the music.”
