Mick Jenkins Announces New Album, Shares New Single ‘Smoke Break-Dance’

    Mick Jenkins has announced a new album, The Patience, which will arrive on August 18 via RBC Records/BMG. The follow-up to 2021’s Elephant in the Room is led by the single ‘Smoke Break-Dance’, which is produced by Stoic and features JID. Check out its Andre Muir–directed video below.

    “As best I can be, I am a person who does everything within his power to change his situation,” Jenkins said of the new LP. “I think with some level of consistency, that behavior inevitably leads you to a point where you have to wait. I see this as a period of time in one’s journey, no matter the length, where the unseen things must take place; the muscles must tear and repair, the understanding of a concept coming to you in a moment completely devoid of artistic intention. It’s through these moments where I’ve found myself being the most frustrated with patience. And this body of work sounds like that frustration.”
