Theophilus London returns in more seasoned form on his sophomore album Vibes, executive produced by none other than Kanye West. Set to hit retailers on November 4, fans can hear the project a week early via a guilt-free stream.

The project dons 12-tracks, including the West-assisted “Can’t Stop.” Jesse Boykins III, Devonte Hynes, Leon Ware and Soko round out the guest appearances. Pre-order London’s Vibes on iTunes. Peep a statement the Brooklyn-bred rapper’s explanation for the LP and the stream below.

In my process of creating, I didn’t want to say, ‘OK. This is what the album title’s going to be’ and start creating around that. I more so want to be free and creative at all times. In the whole two-year process, I was tweaking the album up until the last hours of handing it in. The album is called Vibes because everything that happened creatively and spiritually just all vibed together. Everyone who worked on it with me did it on a family level. We all vibed together. You couldn’t even plan it. It was all vibes.

The goal was to get back to a happy place in my life. I went through some dark times. On this album, I was chasing demons and sacrificing a lot. I’m just excited that I could make a piece of work that I’m happy about, that my great aunt was spiritually here for me to help me finish writing this album.
