Jordan Asher, better known as his stage name Boots, has released details about his upcoming debut album following his latest EP, Motorcycle Jesus.
Run the Jewels ended their weekly Apple Music Beats 1 radio show WRTJ on Friday with a brand new Boots track titled “AQUΛRIA.” The song is from Boots’ upcoming debut album of the same name, which he confirmed on Twitter. “AQUΛRIA” is adorned with sweet, hauntingly beautiful backup guest vocals from Angel Deradoorian, former member of Dirty Projectors.
The only way that you could’ve heard “AQUΛRIA” was to tune into WRTJ. Boots didn’t announce a public release date for the track or the album. Much like his persona and anything he works on, “AQUΛRIA” remains lowkey.
If you haven’t listened to anything Boots has done, you’re missing out. His work can be found here. Also, grab your copy of Beyoncé’s self-titled 2013 album and listen to the production Boots blessed it with. Sing along to the songs he helped write. Listen to Run The Jewels’ second album and hear one of the best hooks of 2014 being sung by Boots on “Early,” or appreciate some of the production he was involved in on “Lie, Cheat, Steal.” He’s working with FKA twigs on her third EP, fittingly titled EP3, too.
You know Boots, but you just didn’t know.
That’s the beauty of his artistry.
Make yourself acquainted with him soon. It isn’t long until he takes over the industry and demolishes the game with his talent.
