Brockhampton have unveiled their new song and video for “I Been Born Again.” It’s the first single the group has released since 2018’s Number One-charting Iridescence, and also the first new music they’ve unveiled this year.
In the Spencer Ford-directed visual, a foreboding beat sets the tone for the primarily black-and-white, grainy scenes, which include woozy 360-degree shots from the ground on a night street, a member being dragged away and a creepily whispered opening verse.
It ends with a chanted rap that could also serve as a mantra: “Send ’em out the door/They ain’t knockin’ no more/Send ’em, send ’em out the door/They ain’t knockin’ no more.”
Earlier in July, the band unveiled a link on social media, which leads to merchandise and a digital album called Ginger, which does not indicate a release date. However, there is a countdown clock that specifies that as of Wednesday night there are three days plus a few more hours “until closing.” It’s unclear if “I Been Born Again” will appear on their forthcoming album release.
