We’ve been waiting on a new album from Lido ever since Battle Poetry dropped in 2013, and now, out of pretty much nowhere, it looks like our wish has been granted. In a post on Instagram tonight, Lido announced that not only was his new album completed, but that he will be performing the entire thing during his set at Coachella this year. Considering he’s set to play on Friday during both weekends (April 15 and 22), that means at least some fans will be hearing his album as soon as this weekend. “I’m gonna get in so much trouble for this but fuck it,” he wrote. “My album is done and I’m playing the whole thing at Coachella.”
He has yet to announce an official release date for the project, but with him premiering the entire thing, it hopefully won’t be too long. He dropped the video for the project’s first single, “Crazy,” last week. He also wowed us last year with his dreamy production work on Towkio and Chance the Rapper‘s “Heaven Only Knows.” By the looks of it, this album is shaping up to be something special. Any Coachella attendees should be sure to check his set out.
