Cadence Weapon Announces New Album ‘ROLLERCOASTER’, Shares New Song ‘Press Eject’

    Rollie Pemberton – the Canadian rapper, producer, and author who records as Cadence Weapon – has announced his sixth album, ROLLERCOASTER. The follow-up to 2021’s Polaris Prize-winning Parallel World lands April 19 via MNRK Music. Check out the lead single ‘Press Eject’, produced by Grandtheft, below.

    “I wanted to write an anthem for people who are fed up with the way the Internet has become,” Pemberton explained in a statement about the new song. “I want to remind people that there are platforms that have come and gone, because they’re vulnerable if we aren’t on them. I’m encouraging everyone to be more empowered and thoughtful about how we engage with social media. Maybe we can create a better situation for ourselves.”

    Rollercoaster includes contributions from Bartees Strange, Jacques Greene, Machinedrum, Cecile Believe, Martyn Bootyspoon, Loraine James, Taydex, Wesley Singerman, myst milano, and Harrison. “I was observing parallels between the fraudulence of certain institutions and the fake news of the internet,” Pemberton said. “With bots and people being willfully false for profit, the internet has led to a total obfuscation of reality.”
