Armand Hammer releasing vinyl-only, tour-only album ‘BLK LBL’

Armand Hammer are beginning a tour on Saturday (1/20) in support of their excellent 2023 album We Buy Diabetic Test Strips, and as Stereogum points out, they revealed that they’ll have a vinyl-only album called BLK LBL available at the shows. They did a similar thing in 2022 with WHT LBL, a limited-to-500, vinyl-only release “consisting of unreleased material and collaborations, new and old,” and billy woods says, “Like the WHT LBL, some individual songs may end up in new (or old) places but this project will not be on streaming.”

The album features production from JPEGMAFIA, Aesop Rock, DJ Haram, Messiah Musik, Kenny Segal, The Lasso, Samiyam, Andrew Broder, August Fannon, The Lasso, and Armand Hammer’s own ELUCID, plus appearances by Dreamcrusher, Mattie, Zeroh, and A. Billi Free. Check out the full tracklist and upcoming tour dates below.
