Mndsgn has revealed that he’ll be releasing a new album called Rare Pleasure on June 4 through Stones Throw. The news comes heralded by the lead single and video “Hope You’re Doin’ Better”.
The title “Hope You’re Doin’ Better” tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the song, as it finds Mndsgn reaching out a tendril of love and friendship to someone who’s “going through the motions”, just to let them know “you know you got a friend whenever you need one.” Sonically, he matches the familial warmth of his words with neo-jazz production that’s relaxed and homely – but not without his own personal style. It all adds up to a simply blissful whole that’ll make it seem like the sun’s shining on you, no matter when or where you are, physically and mentally.
