Published Sep 23, 2014Buck 65's new album Neverlove is inspired by his recent divorce, but it's not quite your average mopey breakup record. To hear for yourself, it's available to stream to here on Exclaim.ca ahead of its September 30 release date.
As you'd expect from a record inspired by romantic loss, there are plenty of moments of downcast introspection. But the man also known as Richard Terfry throws some curveballs along the way: opener "Gates of Hell" sports slinky loops and jumbled, hard-hitting beats, while single "Super Pretty Naughty" is a sugar-spiked club anthem with laser-beam synths and hooks about having sex and eating birthday cake.
Of course, if you're looking for songs to listen to while staring wistfully out the window and crying into your pillow, cuts like "Only War" and "Roses in the Rain" should do the trick.
Listen to the heartbreak play out below.
