GoldLink returns with his brand new album Diaspora.

Having exploded in profile since gaining a Grammy nomination off the back of 2017’s ‘Crew’, and spending plenty of time in London, he’s switching things up from his more locally focussed At What Cost? to a globally minded record.

“After I did my love letter to D.C. I wanted to figure out what was the pulse, why I love my city so much and I think the answer wasn’t directly in the city,” he told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 recently. “I think it was more so directly somewhere else. I’ve never had as much fun making a record because I think that I went about it. Like, I never went to another place outside of D.C. to make a record.”

The 14 track collection boasts the new singles ‘Zulu Screams’, ‘U Say’ and ‘Joke Ting’, and includes an impressive list of guest collaborators including Tyler The Creator, Pusha T, Khalid, Maleek Berry, WizKid, Jay Prince, Bibi Bourelly, Ari PenSmith, WSTRN, Jackson Wang and Lil Nei.

Diaspora lands ahead of GoldLink joining Tyler, The Creator‘s IGOR tour along with Jaden Smith and Blood Orange in September.
