Steve Lacy has dropped his debut LP, Apollo XXI. First announced in a cover story with i-D earlier this year, Apollo XXI follows the 2017 solo EP Steve Lacy's Demo, which featured the single "Dark Red." Apollo XXI was recorded in Lacy's sister's bedroom after she went away to college, and follows the musician's journey through young adulthood.
"It’s basically my journey, my sexuality. But in a very fun and witty way, it’s not really that serious, it’s not super sad. I think it’s my journey, it’s an expression of how I feel right now," Lacy told i-D of the album in his interview. (Lacy has discussed being openly bisexual in the past.) Apollo XXI features collaborations with DAISY and Amandla Stenberg, the latter of whom has their own interlude titled "Amandla's Interlude." Listen to Apollo XXI above.
