The project follows-up her 2014 album 'Souled Out'.

In a mission statement released on Instagram, Jhené Aiko revealed that she has been on a physical, emotional, and mental journey to find herself after her brother passed away in 2012.

“My brother and I were very close. We were only two years apart,” she said.

“I never thought of him as a separate person, but an extension of myself. He was my reflection. In his presence I was confident and always so sure.”

The singer also released a short film to accompany the album, directed by Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip).

“It’s inspired by every type of trip you could imagine: mental, physical, even psychedelic,” Jhené told Playboy. “I’m at a point where I put it all in the music. It’s a puzzle I want people to put together.”
