What to expect from the rapper’s new album
Harlow will release his next album Come Home the Kids Miss You on May 6. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Harlow shared that the album is what he has “wanted to make” his “whole life.”
“I’m working with such incredible people that I’m not gonna do anything to take any of the light off them,” Harlow told Rolling Stone. “But I will proudly say that I was part of the production of the entire thing, because I just know what I want more than ever. I tell these guys I’m working with that I’m so grateful for them. Because I’m making the music I wanted to make my whole life.”
He continued, “Finally, I’m getting exactly what I’m looking for out of production, instead of reaching for something like I’ve been doing for so many years. And you’ll be able to hear the little bits of it in my discography along the way that led to this… And I’m sure on the next project, it’ll be an even more elite form of what I’m talking about.”
