Though not formally announced at the time of writing, upon pre-ordering the LP and purchasing pre-sale access for the band’s upcoming tour, fans were sent an email revealing the album will be available for digital download on a yet-to-be-determined date this September.
It’s important to note that the BROCKHAMPTON website, which previously indicated a September 21 release, now claims the album download will be available “on release date,” with no specific date listed.
Regardless of date and clerical errors, Iridescence will be a major moment for BROCKHAMPTON. With their SATURATION trilogy behind them, the band is likely to enter a new era of sonics and subject matter. which is exciting, but also stands to challenge their fans. Over the past month, the group has released three new singles: "1999 WILDFIRE," "1998 TRUMAN," and "1997 DIANA."
DJBooth has reached out to RCA Records for further comment.
Update: This article has been updated to reflect a change in release date, which we were told was the result of a clerical error.
