Mick Jenkins Announces New Album ‘Elephant in the Room’, Unveils Video for New Song

    Mick Jenkins has announced his fourth studio album, Elephant in the Room, which arrives October 29 via Cinematic Music Group. It includes the previously shared single ‘Truffles’ as well as the newly unveiled track ‘Contacts’. Check out its accompanying video below, along with the album’s cover artwork and tracklist.

    Mick Jenkins executive produced Elephant in the Room with Lon Renzell, who also mixed the record. It features production from Thelonious Martin, Saba, Monte Booker, and more, as well as guest contributions from Ayinde Cartman, serpentwithfeet, and greenSLLIME.

    “This album is an attempt to address various unspoken personal and general truths and how they have affected me and can affect those around me,” Jenkins explained in a statement. “From my estranged relationship with my father, to friendships that don’t feel the same anymore, to the even more basic idea of acknowledging that I need help. We become accustomed to allowing non-progressive qualities and truths to occupy so much space in our lives by ignoring them – I intend to face several of those dormant topics head-on.”
