How to stream
It took five years for Isaiah Rashad to drop his latest project ‘The House is Burning’. The Tennessee native has been teasing the project for the last two years. To announce his latest record, he shared the cover art that comes in the form of a colored drawing showing a very tiny house set on fire, referring to the title of the album.
Speaking to Pitchfork earlier, Rashad shed light on how difficult it was to create an album. “I love music, but I don’t like to say shit. It’s almost like a game for me. It’s like working out. I don’t want to be redundant. Redundancy in general bothers me. Any song that I make, I usually make it in about 30 minutes to an hour, and that’s it. My ideas come to me immediately.” He added, “Music is where I go to express myself. It’s what I do to close a chapter. You know what’s crazy? I’m not even ashamed to say it- I really think my albums aren’t different from each other. Eventually, one of my albums will become a classic. I just love this s**t. It’s me.”
The album, ‘The House is Burning’, is preceded by three songs namely ‘Lay Wit Ya’ featuring Duke Deuce’, ‘200/Warning’, and ‘Headshots (4r Da Locals)’. Though we are still waiting for the official tracklist, the aforementioned singles are expected to make it to the album. MEAWW will keep you posted.
