Topaz Jones has announced a new album titled Don’t Go Tellin’ Your Momma. No release date has yet been revealed, but the follow-up to the New Jersey rapper’s 2016 LP Arcade will be accompanied by a short film of the same name, written and directed by Jones alongside rubberband. The film, which features a cameo from Black Thought, recently won the Short Film Jury Award: Nonfiction at Sundance. Check out a trailer below.
“The film is all the things I couldn’t say in musical notes,” Jones said in a press release. “The music is everything I couldn’t write in words, even though there’s lyrics that speak to it as well, but emotionally, it’s everything I couldn’t necessarily write down and the film is everything that I couldn’t put in song. It is single-handedly the most gratifying, fulfilling experience I’ve had as an artist.”
Jones has also shared a new track from the album, ‘Herringbone’, which you can find below as well. Marking his first new music in three years, the single was produced by Jones, Jack Hallenbeck, and Alissia Benveniste.
