Uzi fans rejoice, your Instagram comments have been heard.
Lil Uzi Vert has returned with new music, officially, at long last. The Philly native and modern emo icon has released two new songs, “Sanguine Paradise” and “That’s a Rack,” his first two official solo releases — out via his label, Atlantic Records — since 2018’s “New Patek.”
“Sanguine Paradise,” the more club-ready track, is produced by Oogie Man and Brandon Finessin, both part of the Philly-based production crew Working on Dying, and samples Mykko Montana’s 2012 banger “Do It.”
“That’s a Rack” is a more moody affair, produced by Nick Mira (of “Lucid Dreams” fame) and Oogie Mane.
The new songs come two weeks after the release of “Free Uzi,” which Atlantic called a “leaked record” and “not official” in a statement to The FADER and which was later pulled from streaming services, and the news that Uzi had signed a management deal with Roc Nation. Nearly two years after the release of his debut studio album, 2017’s Luv Is Rage 2, Uzi fans continue to clamor for the release of his long-teased sophomore LP Eternal Atake.
Let’s hope these new songs are a sign it’s on the way soon.
