LONG-AWAITED JADEN SMITH ALBUM SYRE OUT NOW
“Icon” Video Premiered Today On Complex
Eclectic Rapper Opening For Fall Out Boy On North American Tour
Los Angeles, CA (November 17, 2017) — Multitalented actor, model and musician, Jaden Smith released his debut album SYRE today via the artist’s own MSFTS Music/Roc Nation label through their Interscope Records partnership. A brand-new video for the song “Icon” premiered exclusively on Complex, you can check out the self-directed video HERE.
This past summer, Smith teased the forthcoming project by putting out back-to-back singles: “Watch Me,” a rock-tinged rap ditty, which showcases the 18-year-old’s growing agility as a master rhymesayer and “Batman,” a tribute to the late Adam West that resurrects Smith’s superhero alter ego, first introduced at the West-Kardashian nuptials three-and-a-half years ago.
Both songs and their accompanying music videos have been well received with nearly ten million collective views to date on VEVO alone. An all around performance artist, Smith will simultaneously release a complete visual work to supplement the project, which he says has been three years in the making. The artist leaked a third song, “Falcon” featuring Raury, earlier this week.
“This album is a love letter to the world,” says Jaden.
A follow-up to his mixtapes, The Cool Café and Cool Tapes Vol. 2, SYRE is Smith’s first full-length made available to a wide audience. Rock star Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy recently called Jaden Smith “the future of music” and tapped the eclectic, young rapper to open up for his band on a string of dates during their current Mania tour.
Smith also made a memorable appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday. SYRE is now available worldwide on all digital platforms.
