Quelle Chris has released his new album Innocent Country 2 with producer/instrumentalist Chris Keys. The duo’s 16-track LP features Earl Sweatshirt, Homeboy Sandman, Joseph Chilliams, Billy Woods and Denmark Vessey, among others.

“Where Innocent Country explored isolation Innocent Country 2 embraces community,” Chris explained to Pitchfork. “The overtones of pessimism in IC1 have been replaced with hope. This ‘country,’ presented as both the individual and the whole, has hands stained in blood. From action and inaction.”

He noted, “IC2 is not only about recognizing what makes us who we are, good and evil, but about acknowledging, growing, healing, helping, communicating, living, learning (and more verbs than I can attempt to write in a quote) together.”
