This month has got to be one of the most exciting months of the year in terms of new music. Not only have we been blessed with upcoming material by the likes of Gorillaz, Feist and more by the end of April, but further than that we have fresh music and accompanying visuals by some of our favorite artists out there dropping down on us seemingly by the second.
As if what we knew already hadn’t had us fangirling enough, April 1st started off with what many believed to be an April-fools-prank: Hip Hop duo Rae Sremmurd, who have been praised and adored by critics and fans alike, have announced an upcoming third Album via twitter. With their post simply reading “Sremm 3”, the two brothers had both fans and industry insiders going crazy. Although an official release date has yet to be announced, Rae Sremmurd debuted a new track the same night this post appeared, basically confirming speculations that they’ve been working on new music.

Brooklyn-native rapper Desiigner, who rose to fame in late 2015 with his chart breaking single “Panda”, has also rewarded his fans with new music. The 19-year old is currently busy travelling all of North America on his “The Outlet”-tour, which does not stop him from creating and releasing new material. It was just last night that Desiigner released not one, but two(!) brand new tracks plus a re-release of an older track that had only been available through Soundcloud.

Next, we’ve got a new music video by Travis Scott for “Goosebumps” featuring guest vocals and appearance by the one and only Kendrick Lamar. Watch a preview for the trippy clip below or view in full exclusively via Apple Music.
Last but most certainly not least, James Blake features on former band Mount Kimbie’s new single “We Go Home Together”. This is the first we’ve heard from the British electronic trio-gone-duo since their 2013 album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. Apperently, Mount Kimbie has a whole lot of upcoming projects in store we can’t wait to hear more from. But until then, we’ll keep obsessing over the (slightly disturbing) visual for “We Go Home Together”. Watch it, too, right here:
