Open Mike Eagle has announced his new album Anime, Trauma and Divorce with a new single called “Bucciariati” (featuring Kari Faux). The album is set to drop October 16 via Eagle’s own AutoReverse Records. Check out “Bucciariati” below.
Of the album, Open Mike Eagle said in a statement:
Before the world went to shit I was already in the middle of a few personal crises. Shit had gone haywire personally and professionally and my therapist had to remind me that I have an outlet to process some of my shit in rap music. So I made a bunch of painful rap songs and Jacknife Lee was kind enough to help me make good music out of them. Maybe it can help other people too. It probably won’t but maybe.
Anime, Trauma and Divorce features the previously shared “I’m a Joestar (Black Power Fantasy)” and “The Edge of New Clothes.” The album follows Eagle’s 2018 What Happens When I Try to Relax EP and his 2017 full-length Brick Body Kids Still Daydream.
