The Internet’s Syd has shared a new solo album in its entirety and some corresponding videos. Fin, is available on iTunes and Soundcloud, as well as a variety of other free and premium locations. Syd wrote and produced Fin, which also features production from MeLo-X (who worked on Lemonade), Hit-Boy, Haze, Rahki, and the Internet’s Steve Lacy (on “All About Me”). Below, Syd’s new video, directed by Calmatic and featuring appearances from the other Internet members as well as Tyler the Creator.
Syd’s perspective on the new album
In an earlier interview, Syd called the songs on Fin “not that deep.” She indicated, “This is my descent into the depth I want the band to get to”. “This is like an in-between thing–maybe get a song on the radio, maybe make some money, have some new shit to do.”
