With Aesop Rock‘s The Impossible Kid set to grace our lives April 29, the New York native is rolling out a weekly web series where he discusses different songs, themes and the process of the album. The first episode, “Sorry I’m Late,” has Aesop showing up late to a therapy session in the woods, which is held and attended by animated animals from the surrounding environment.
The episode details the first step in the process of making the album — moving to the middle of nowhere, and, more specifically, a barn. He talks about how he felt his life was getting too repetitive, so when the opportunity to live in a barn came up, he took it.
