With the release of his third independent album on the horizon, Ab-Soul and his team at TDE are in full-on promo mode. Following Booth-approved singles Tree Of Life and Stigmata, as well as the overhyped but underwhelming Hunnid Stax, fans are treated to the album’s title track. Insanely, though, the Blended Babies-produced record did not actually make the final track list, which was revealed earlier this week. Featuring soulful hook work from upstart Chicago band The O’My’s, These Days is an abbreviated (a few seconds short of two full minutes) recording, which carries a blusey undertone that underscores the suggested hard times a listener might be currently experiencing. Do you smoke? Do you drink? What, exactly, do you do to de-stress? For some, it might be picking up a copy of Ab-Soul’s latest full-length. It will be available in stores and online June 24.
