Having not posted on snapchat for a while, Tablo returned to snapchat on the 21st of January. His purpose – to give international fans an update on Epik High’s upcoming album + to share his thoughts on the progress. His snapchat posts were all text images , and we have merged them all together in the text below
Long time no snap, I’ve been sticking to instagram stories because with the new album recording underway I just don’t have time to maintain multiple apps, but my thoughts are with you bornhaters anyway.
Two updates : 1. I have a fresh new song with grammy nominee Gallant and kpop sweetheart Eric Nam coming to you very soon – eng speaking fans will love it 2: been working without sleep on Epik High’s 9th full length album (currently untitled). We played our demos for a close few friends and their reactions range from “it’s beautifully haunting” to “i’m going to sit in a dark room by myself now, never knock”
I want to keep working on the album until it becomes what it’s supposed to be. I know it has been over two years. But we’re not in this to be trending or relevant or whatever else is the smart thing to be… so it may drop tomorrow or tooooo morrow. I’m feeling a lot of pressure from people around me saying things like “man !!! the last album was such a success! 2 years??? Imagine if you had rode the wave with constant follow ups!!!” Sometimes I agree with them and it makes me feel regretful and even more remorseful … like I lost something irreplaceable. Even though that is something that never existed in the first place.
I just want to give people something that breaths. Unfortunately, this requires me to do that as well. To breathe, sometimes for years, and take into my lungs the good ,the bad and the horrible. I’ve taken deep gasps of all three. People will say “who cares?”. My problem is that I actually do.
I came in here to post a short update about the gallant collab + our album… I DIGRESSED. a plenty of beers and typos have gone by… GOODNIGHT. What I’m trying to say is that I’m trying. Love.
