Mick Jenkins has announced his new album, The Patience, with “Smoke Break-Dance,” a new single produced by Stoic and featuring JID. Jenkins’ follow-up to 2021’s Elephant in the Room is due out August 18 (via RBC/BMG). Check out the Andre Muir–directed music video for the new song below. Scroll down for the new album’s cover.

Of the new album, Jenkins said in a statement:

The Patience: As best I can be, I am a person who does everything within his power to change his situation. I think with some level of consistency, that behavior inevitably leads you to a point where you have to wait. A point where the things that now need to happen to move you forward are no longer in your control. I see this as a period of time in one’s journey, no matter the length, where the unseen things must take place; the muscles must tear and repair, the understanding of a concept coming to you in a moment completely devoid of artistic intention. It’s through these moments where I’ve found myself being the most frustrated with patience.

And this body of work sounds like that frustration.
