After a very long year, L’Orange is back with his newest single “Look Around” featuring Oddisee. The song is the first single f L’Orange’s The Ordinary Man, the third solo album from producer that drops next month. Over a soul production, the D.C. spitta drops knowledge. “I think I’m running out things that ain’t nobody can tell me/Ain’t to many dreams that somebody can come sell me/Empty promises no longer waisting my time,” Oddisee raps. This is a great taste what’s to come on The Ordinary Man.
For L’Orange, he’s been battling with depression as well as hearing loss and has undergone multiple surgeries. But, he’s back with more new music for his fans. He’s one the most underrated producers in hip-hop, L’Orange is known for his early 20th century inspired style and stripped down jazz influence.
The Ordinary Man is the first first solo full-length project since 2014’s The Orchid Days. He closed out last year with his Koala EP teamed up with Mr. Lif for the collab The Life and Death Of Scenery album. L’Orange’s forthcoming LP will feature vocal appearances from underground legends Del The Funky Homosapien, Blu, Elzhi as well as up and coming artists Koreatown Oddity, Chuuwee and Solemn Brigham.
The new LP follows a magician from being an unknown to the biggest star in the world. Performing impossible feats for thousands people, the magician eventually becomes disillusioned and bitter, blaming the world for not understanding his greatness.
