It’s been three long years since Saba released an album (2018’s incredible Care For Me), but the gifted Chicago artist is finally ready to deliver again. Taking to Twitter, he announced his third album, Few Good Things, is “coming soon.”
“Thank you to everyone who waited,” Saba says. “I can’t believe I’m writing this right now but i’m ready. With everything going on, it gets hard to take your time. It’s something I find valuable in my own art. But y’all have grown with me through years of this sh*t now. And I’m extremely grateful.”
“I’ve both lost so much and gained so much since the last go round. These last few years have been eternities for me,” he continued. “This next one is special to me.”
On top of the announcement, Saba has also shared the project’s first single, “Fearmonger.”
“At the time of making this record I was beginning to realize how big of a hold fears actually had on me,” Saba says about the Daoud-laced track. “With big decisions to make, I was never sure if I was doing the right thing. Fearing if I was actually doing enough. Fear had become something that I just accepted. No longer trying to overcome it. Fear of losing everything. Fear of failure. Fear of not being enough. I walk on uncharted territory and it makes me think of my own family and their relationships to fear, failure, and success. The song mostly deals with fear as it relates to money in the Black household, a fear that I am still currently working through.”
Press play below and be on the lookout for the album.
