Yep, he emphasized that he would release a beat tape AND a full-blown instrumental album.

Yeah, one thing to note is that a lot (if not all) of the beats Kno used on his instagram beat a day stint are not on Bones, so he has a lot of unreleased beats/material.

Word, March 31st something is happening. Can’t wait.

I figure it must be a single/announcement date with less than a month notice and no specifics given. Can’t wait to find out what it is!

Feels like a natti album

Can’t wait. *Bart Scott Voice*

Super quiet in here for mysterious artwork to have just popped up a few days ago. But I feel you on the Natti album. That’s what I think too.

I’m super excited about whatever this is. Based on the artwork, I’m also thinking Natti album.

March 22-Oneirology release.
April 1- SJV3 release.

I feel safe saying whatever they release in the last week of March will be mind blowing.

Given that the artwork is almost a compliment/ying yang to the Still Motion artwork, and we know Natti began working on a second solo project more than 2 years ago, i’ll be pretty surprised if its not a Natti solo

So its 3/31/17 and its quiet on this forum and CL hasnt said anything or released anything wtf? Any updates? I was so pumped for today and nothing

Oh shit I spoke to soon!!!

Red Bird is my fav! Good job guys!

Looks like it’s gonna be one of three color EPs that make a full album. Other colors are blue and yellow.

Look what tone started!

Wait there’s more? This is an EP series? Dope.

I don’t think anything has been announced yet but at the bottom of the homepage there is a color wheel with red, yellow and blue on it. Considering the fact that the first EP is red and these are the 3 primary colors that make every other color, it only makes sense to assume they’re doing something similar to Polymer.
I’d also like to point out that this EP is incredible. I’ve listened to it roughly 8 times now and I just don’t understand how they keep getting better. I was really hoping to hear a Kno verse on here but he more than made up for it with the production. My god, this whole group is at the absolute top of their craft right now.

Lol it’s crazy, I spend a lot of time looking for new music (and I do find it) but you guys are like detectives with it. I would have never put together that color scheme = more EPs thing.

Oh, man. And here I was trying to figure out which color : which song.

Tight! Looking forward to more.

Can’t wait to hear the next EP. I’m loving how dark and moody that artwork is too.

Two weeks until next EP: The Azura. Cool.

Is it out yet???? I’ve been looking forward to this for the last few weeks!!!

It came out last night. Violet’s beat is just….my goodness.

Love this EP even more than the last one. Gone is absolutely beautiful and I challenge you all to NOT tear up towards the production piece at the end. Natti and Deacon as MCs are as deep and as cryptic as ever on this thing and I love that as well. Great job as always fellas.

I don’t know if I’m the only one who missed this, but apparantly the full album Rose Azura Njano is set to be realeased on October 6th.

I wonder if the Njano EP will consist of 3 songs as well, meaning that the album is only 9 songs long - and if the project will consist of 3 separate EP with related themes or if the songs will form a “proper”, more cohesive album in the same way as Polymer.

The Azura EP is beautiful. Just got through my first listen. Deacon and Natti are on another level of poetic rap. It was a pleasant surprise when a Kno verse kicked in at the end of Any Way The Wind Blows. Always a pleasant juxtaposition against those two. Looking forward to the culmination of this triple EP project.

I didn’t catch this anywhere either, but just searched and found it on some European sites/forums, but most notably on a Bad Taste blog post.

Dope if the LP news is true. Just heard The Rose EP was taken off bandcamp, Kno tweeting it was a limited time thing so makes sense it will be part of the album but it’s still up for those that purchased it, like me.

Any Way the Wind Blows is just a great track. It sounds instantly classic CL, but without a hint of being repetitive of anything else they’ve done.

So many great parts on all of these tracks, but so far I am digging every second of Natti’s lyrics on this whole color project. I mean: “Shower water calling, fluoride on the other line/Phone jumping off the dresser, In a silent suicide” It is like daring someone to annotate that on genius and not sound trite.
