Cordae’s sophomore album, From A Bird’s Eye View arrives on Jan. 14, he announced on Wednesday (Dec. 8). In a Steve Jobs-nodding video, the Maryland-bred rapper donned a black turtleneck and jeans and gave a conference-style presentation about his forthcoming effort.

“This is a day that I’ve been looking forward to for two-and-a-half years,” Cordae said in the clip. “As a creative and an innovator, we must always aim to outdo ourselves. And with that being said, I present to you my second body of workFrom A Bird’s Eye View.”

“Wow, look at that. Isn’t she beautiful?” Cordae said to his cheering audience after presenting the album’s cover art. “She arrives on January 14, 2022. Save the date.”

From A Bird’s Eye View will be released via Atlantic Records and feature 14 songs, including “Super,” “Sinister” with Lil Wayne and “Gifted” with Roddy Ricch. In a press statement, Cordae said the upcoming album was inspired by “a life-changing trip to Africa, enduring the loss of a friend gone too soon, and evolving as an artist and a man.”

From A Bird’s Eye View will mark the official follow-up to Cordae’s 2019 debut effort, The Lost Boy. That album earned him two nominations at the 62nd Grammy Awards, including Best Rap Album.

Speaking with XXL in July, Cordae described From A Bird’s Eye View as “bassline heavy” and revealed Stevie Wonder, Raphael Saadiq, Terrace Martin, Jake One, Kid Culture and more contributed to the project.

“It’s always scary when I release an album because you are injecting your entire heart, your feelings, your deepest most transparent, vulnerable moments… for others to judge and listen,” he told the outlet. “But when I’m on this road and these kids start talking to me and telling me how my music helped them through very dark spaces within their lives, that makes me know that this is my calling.”

Back in September, Cordae gave students at participating HBCUs a “sneak peek” at his unreleased music while on his “Kickin’ it With Cordae” college campus tour. See his Instagram post below.
