Black Pumas emerged from the shadows on Tuesday with a not-so-subtle post hinting at the existence of new music. Across the band’s social media, the duo of producer/multi-instrumentalist Adrian Quesada and singer/lyricist Eric Burton shared an image of a portable hard drive labeled “Pumas II”.

Huge if true, this would mark the band’s second-ever album, coming four years after Black Pumas’ landmark self-titled debut. Following the release of Black Pumas, the Austin, TX outfit went on to conquer the indie rock world with an avalanche of awards (including six Grammys), prominent festival bookings, international headlining tours, a slot performing (digitally) at President Joe Biden‘s 2020 inauguration, and more.

Recently, however, the band fueled speculation of a breakup—or at the very least a hiatus—by suddenly clearing its touring calendar back in August 2022. At the time, Black Pumas offered few details, writing, “After four incredible years of career milestones and unforgettable live experiences around the world, we have made the difficult decision to press pause and step away from touring for the rest of the year.”

Meanwhile, Quesada logged two brilliant and unique releases in 2022 around the time of the sudden cancelations. Boleros Psicodélicos, a celebration of psychedelic ’60s and ’70s Latin love songs dropped in June, followed by Jaguar Sound, an engrossing collection of cinematic instrumentals, in November. Nearly three years to the day after Black Pumas made their debut on Austin City Limits, Quesada returned to the landmark PBS show for his solo debut on the program, exploring Boleros Psicodélicos with an extensive backing band. Burton has largely stayed out of the spotlight after flubbing the words to “The Star-Spangled Banner” during the MLB World Series last October.
