Oh Boy, Lil Peep's Debut Album Is Here

Now is a good time to be someone who used to have From First To Last lyrics set as their MSN name.

Look, I know it's a bit early to be talking about getting high and sucking dick. However, Lil Peep has dropped his debut album two weeks early, so we're going to have to.

This, his first "official release", is everything you would expect it to be – which is fantastic news if you are already a fan, more fuel for a furious Reddit thread if you're not and also have a lot of time on your hands, and simply "news" if you don't know who Lil Peep is. We have attempted to unpack the mystery that is The Boy With The Daddy Tattoo several times on this website before, as well as actually hanging out with him and giving him the space to unpack himself (and, tbh, the mystery largely remains). So instead of listing all of his attributes and interests by way of attempting to explain him to you once again, I will simply present you with the facts:

- The album is called Come Over When You're Sober. It was originally due out 11 August before being pushed back at the last minute, to 1 September, then appearing online late on Monday. There is now a "(Part 1)" added to the title, presumably relating to a since-deleted tweet where Peep said he'd be dropping a second album shortly after. Love to be an artist trying to simply release their music in the year 2017!

- He announced the release via an this peak selfie, this video and this tweet.

- It is about getting high and sucking dick.

- Also other stuff, like having a hard time with your mental health and finding escape in substances and sabotaging all your relationships. The vocal melodies are on point, track 6 sounds like it really wanted to sample "Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don't" by Brand New, and if you don't like it and you're not a teen or didn't have From First To Last lyrics as your MSN name at some point then shut up because it's not for you anyway.
