The vocalist also dropped a trailer for the album, which does not have an official release date yet. In the black and white clip, Faiyaz is seen resting on a car’s hood while a “W” is spraypainted on the wall behind him. A series of title cards lists album contributors (including the aforementioned), as well as: Raphael Saadiq, L3gion, Tre’ Amani, Nascent, No I.D., Paperboy Fabe, Mike Dean, Lil Rece, The Neptunes, Jonathan “Freeze” Wells, Mikeblud, OG Che’ The Sensei, Joony, DJ Dahi, Beat Butcha, Steve Lacy, Itai Schwartz, Jayne Andrew, Coop The Truth, Sam Wish, Malcolm Mays, and Jimi Cravity.
In 2021, Brent released singles “Gravity” with Tyler, the Creator, and “Wasting Time,” produced by The Neptunes and featuring Drake. “Gravity” wouldn’t be the first time that Brent and Tyler have linked up, as the two collaborated on “Sweet / I Thought You Wanted to Dance” on Tyler’s Grammy-award winning album CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST. Prior to dropping the credits for Wasteland, Brent released single “Mercedes” last year.
