Yung Lean (born Jonatan Leandoer Håstad) has been busy, first with a collaboration with Yung Bans on “No Mercy” in May, as well as focusing on his other pursuits, including fashion. But yesterday he reprised his jonatan leandoer127 moniker in the form of a SoundCloud release, a 6-track project entitled Katla.
The project, billed as an EP, offers a something different from the hip-hop sound that Lean has stuck to in the past. With slower vocals over melancholy backing tracks, the vibe is more ambient and free-form. Reportedly constructed from fragments in 2015, Katla is self-produced and feature-free.
Have a listen below and see what you think about this new offering.
