The indomitable Atlanta duo EARTHGANG have released a brand new song and visualizer titled “Options” featuring Wale. The track’s cover art (created by long time creative collaborator Fred Lozano) was teased earlier in the week featuring OLU, WowGr8 and Wale as fashion dolls. Not one for a straight forward visual, EARTHGANG teamed up with Adult Swim’s “Robot Chicken” animator Bona Bones to take the fashion doll motif to another level. The Zack Sekuler directed visualizer is live now and can be watched below.
The release of the song comes at the heels of EARTHGANG receiving a Grammy Award nomination for “Collide” — a track with Tiana Major9 for film “Queen & Slim.” The song is nominated for “Best R&B Song” category and will be the pair’s second Grammy nod after being nominated earlier this year for their work with Dreamville’s Revenge of Dreamers III album.
EARTHGANG have stayed busy since the release of their critically acclaimed debut album Mirrorland (Dreamville/Interscope) and Platinum certified Revenge of The Dreamers III project both out last year. When touring halted the duo hit the studio to collaborate with music friends like Gorillaz, Tokimonsta, Louis The Child, Tobi Nwigwe and more. Earlier this year, OLU and WowGr8 banded with their Spillage Village members to work on the long awaited Spilligion album which was released to acclaim in the Fall. The album made many “Best of 2020” lists including NPR, FADER, Uproxx, Complex and more. Alongside making music, the pair have also been heavy on the campaign trail in the battleground state of Georgia working closely with Mayor Lance Bottoms and politician Stacey Abrams advocating for voter rights. A bright spot of their hometown, EARTHGANG continue to shine in their purpose to deliver music that aims to entertain and unite.
