Big Gigantic unveils new album, Brighter Future 2, and summer tour. The Genre-bending duo's eighth studio album features special guests including Aloe Blacc, Vic Mensa, GRiZ, Kota The Friend, and more.
Genre-bending Boulder, CO-based duo Big Gigantic have announced the upcoming release of their long-anticipated eighth studio album, Brighter Future 2, featuring many special guests, including Aloe Blacc, Vic Mensa, GRiZ, Kota the Friend, and many more. The album arrives everywhere on Friday, June 10.
Brighter Future 2 is heralded by "Keep On Rising", a stirring new single that sees Big Gigantic reuniting with GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer/songwriter, rapper Aloe Blacc for the first time in more than a decade.
“Our ‘I Need A Dollar’ remix really kicked off our career,” says Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli, “so it was great to reconnect with Aloe Blacc on our new song, ‘Keep On Rising.’ Aloe’s lyrical storytelling and energy are such a perfect match for the Big Gigantic sound. It's an anthem for positivity, rising above, believing in yourself, and never giving up on your dreams, which we think is needed in the world now, more than ever.”
“I love making songs that can inspire and uplift people,” says Aloe Blacc. “Working on ‘Keep On Rising’ with Big Gigantic was a great opportunity to bring another motivational anthem to the world.”
Brighter Future 2 has already been preceded by a pair of mesmerizing new singles, including “Deja Vu (Feat. KOTA The Friend)” and Big Gigantic’s most recent collaboration with shapeshifting maestro GRiZ, “Open Your Mind”.
