New Aesop Rock single "Rogue Wave"

Aesop Rock - Rogue Wave

Following the Malibu Ken project last year, Aesop Rock is currently working on a new solo full-length. In the meantime, he's sharing a brand new single called "Rogue Wave" (video below).

The single is available on digital platforms with pre-orders for a 7" open now.

A portion of  proceeds from the single will be donated to the family of Kurt Hayashi, a friend of Aesop's who recently passed away. Hayashi shot the music video for "Hot Dogs."

Speaking of the single, Aesop says:

Rogue Wave feels like a long journal entry to me - perhaps in the vein of ‘Hot Dogs’ and ‘Klutz,’” states Aesop, referencing his standalone singles from 2017 and 2018, respectively. “I really enjoy skipping the hook entirely. It doesn’t always work - but when it does it just feels right. To me, this song is a small boat lost at sea, rowing for hours, days, losing all track of time and direction – 360 degrees of nothing but ocean. I’ve been a little timid over the years to showcase my own drawings, probably because I’ve been out of practice, and also because people know me for my music. That said – I’ve been drawing a fair amount in recent years, and finally decided to collect a lot of the images together for a music video. My long time collaborator and friend Rob Shaw pieced them together in a way that feels similar to the song – an uninterrupted stream of information.
