Danny Brown Returns with New Album, ‘Quaranta’
Written by 2DOPEBOYZ on November 17, 2023
It’s been four years since Danny Brown released a solo album (2019’s U Know What I’m Sayin?), but the Detroit native is officially back in action with the release of album number six, Quaranta.
Arriving as both the spiritual bookend to his breakout album XXX and a meditative follow-up to this year’s chaotic collaborative album SCARING THE HOES with JPEGMAFIA, Quaranta offers new insight into the inner monologues of an artist who’s mystified fans for over a decade.
Now sober, Brown shares a more pensive, calculated and subdued version of himself with a personal and autobiographical project that was penned during the COVID-19 lockdown while he was holed by himself in downtown Detroit.
“There wasn’t too much to do, so it was the best thing for me to do,” Brown says says, “to put everything I was going through into the music. A lot of people make concept albums, but the concept is my life.”
Press play and be sure to add Quaranta wherever you get music.
