Genre-bending electronic duo Big Gigantic released their eighth studio album, Brighter Future 2, on Friday. The album features all-star collaborations with Aloe Blacc, GRiZ, Vic Mensa, Mick Jenkins, KOTA The Friend, Brooke Williams, Elohim, and more.
Over the past few months, Big Gigantic has shared music videos for each single featured on Brother Future 2, including “Losing My Mind” (with Brooke Williams), “Just The Same” (with Vic Mensa and Mick Jenkins), “Deja Vu” (with KOTA The Friend), Big Gigantic x GRiZ’s “Open Your Mind”, and “Keep On Rising”, the duo’s first collaboration with Grammy-nominated rapper Aloe Blacc in more than a decade. Coinciding with the album drop, they released a new video for “Free” featuring electropop artist/DJ/producer Elohim along with an exclusive look at the story behind the album.
Big Gigantic will celebrate the release of Brighter Future 2 with an extensive live tour, beginning July 6th at Salt Lake City, UT’s The Complex.
