Yung Lean Shares New Mixtape Frost God
20-year-old Yung Lean has had a huge 2016, besides kicking it off with his eclectic sophomore album Warlord and embarking on a sold out world tour, 2016 also saw Lean co-write/produce a track on Frank Ocean’s Blond, star in Calvin Klein’s #mycalvins campaign, launch his own Sadboys Gear brand, co-design a sneaker for Eytys and drop a full length punk album together with Gud as Död Mark – to name a few highlights.
But it was also the year that finally gave Jonatan Leandoer the opportunity to tell his own story regarding what went down in the spring of 2015: the tragic loss of a colleague, his own period of hospitalization in Miami and the long road to recovery that followed.
This convalescence included the initial sketching and songwriting of what would become Frost God – a mixtape of tracks recorded between the fall of 2015 and summer of 2016 that reflects on the above, as well as his more current experiences of growing up and being on the road for months in a row; pop songs of love and longing, rap bangers about life’s sweet nothings.
Frost God includes features from A$AP Ferg, Drain Gang member and on-stage companion Bladee, Goth Money’s Luckaleann and Adamn Killa, and production by WhiteArmor, GUD and Shlohmo, as well as newcomers Acea and Woesum.
This release is a gift for the day ones who can’t wait to see what’s next, as well as all the new admirers Lean has gained over the past year; something to unleash your feelings of 2016 to, and then step into Lean´s 2017 world with a clear mind.
