If you're looking to refresh your spring soundtrack, Harrison has you covered. Today, the Toronto artist has delivered new album Birds, Bees, the Clouds & the Trees via Last Gang / MNRK, and you can hear the entire thing below.

Following the electro-pop explorations of 2018's ApricityBirds, Bees, the Clouds & the Trees finds Harrison at work with personal rap heroes M.E.D. and Guilty Simpson, Kadhja Bonet, Nanna.B and recurring collaborator TOBi.

In a recent interview with Exclaim!, in which he extols his collaborators and embraces vulnerability, Harrison shares, "Honestly, I'd been so scared of making corny music for so long. But I gotta embrace the corn, bro. I'm tryin' to make popcorn. Corn on the cob. I'm okay with that now. So why not just do that? Because people can hear when you're not being genuine as an artist."

In an 8/10 review of Birds, Bees, the Clouds & the Trees, Exclaim! contributor Tom Beedham highlights "an omnipresent dimension of manipulation and influence" across the record, with Harrison employing a "forward-facing funkadelic logic that yearns for something more" in his compositions.

Beedham concludes, "It's a material world, and for Harrison, you have to push the limits working within it to make blue skies reality." Read Exclaim!'s complete review.
