Recorded at home in March 2020 at the start of the pandemic, the thirteen track album explores memory, the future and violence, “all of them wafting through untouched space like the ghostly cinders of a world on fire, unbound and uncharted, vast and stretching across the universe.”

It also features collaborations with artists including Brother May, Lojii, Pink Siifu, Nappy Nina, Maassai, Black Quantum Futurism, and Yatta.

Black Encyclopedia of the Air follows her collaborative BRASS album with billy woods.
