Last week, Saba shared his latest funk-laden rap single "Fearmonger" (feat. Daoud) and announced his third studio album Few Good Things is coming soon. The follow up to his critically acclaimed 2018 album CARE FOR ME that found Saba grappling with the aftermath of his cousin John Walt’s 2017 murder, this next album will see him look deeper within as he explores the realization of self after a search for exterior fulfillment - Few Good Things is to grow comfortable with the empty, and despite that, find your fullness.
Speaking on the inspiration behind his new single, Saba shares, “A ‘fearmonger’ is defined by Cambridge as ‘someone who intentionally tries to make people afraid of something when this is not necessary or reasonable.’ I’m saying we’re embedded with this ‘irrational fear.’ The song takes this concept and kind of turns it slightly abstract by assigning a character to ‘fearmonger.’ I’ve never made a record that sounded anything like this and part of the fun of releasing music is to create worlds sonically and have people trust you to show them around your own imagination.”
He continues, “At the time of making this record I was beginning to realize how big of a hold fears actually had on me. With big decisions to make, I was never sure if I was doing the right thing. Fearing if I was actually doing enough. Fear had become something that I just accepted. No longer trying to overcome it. Fear of losing everything. Fear of failure. Fear of not being enough. I walk on uncharted territory and it makes me think of my own family and their relationships to fear, failure, and success. The song mostly deals with fear as it relates to money in the Black household, a fear that I am still currently working through.”
