Mick Jenkins is set to release his debut album, The Healing Component, this Friday, September 23.
Earlier today, Beats 1 Radio host Zane Lowe delivered the world premiere of "Fall Through," a standout selection from the forthcoming, highly-anticipated LP.
Co-produced by Rascal and frequent collaborator THEMpeople, "Fall Through" is a hard-hitting yet moody affair featuring Mick's signature vocal and dynamite wordplay.
In a brief post-premiere interview, Lowe asked Jenkins about his approach to making "Fall Through," in terms of time signatures and tempo, and how he builds a record.
While I'm a great rapper, and I know there's bars for you to unpack for days, I wanted to work on the melodic aspects of songs, the endearing parts of songs.
Jenkins went on to reveal that he recorded a lot more than the 15 songs that will make up The Healing Component, a project that is centered around the topic of love, but that he has plans to reuse several of them on his next project.
"I'm still going to be talking about love for the next project," explained Mick. "I'm ten songs into my next album, it never really stops for me."
While Jenkins doesn't have a joint project on the way with fellow Chicago natives Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa, as he jokingly suggested last week while answering fan questions on Twitter, the music and visuals he's delivered thus far from The Healing Component are more than enough to be excited. Friday cannot come fast enough.
