Mick Jenkins has returned with details of his forthcoming album Elephant in the Room, and has unveiled new cut "Contacts" as the lead single.

"Contacts" is the second song to be lifted from Jenkins' new album, following June's "Truffles", and is accompanied by a Ren-directed video.

Elephant in the Room will follow Jenkins' 2020 album The Circus, and will feature new collaborations with serpentwithfeet, Ayinde Cartman and greenSLLIME.

Jenkins says of the new record, "This album is an attempt to address various unspoken personal and general truths and how they have affected me and can affect those around me. From my estranged relationship with my father, to friendships that don’t feel the same anymore, to the even more basic idea of acknowledging that I need help. We become accustomed to allowing non-progressive qualities and truths to occupy so much space in our lives by ignoring them - I intend to face several of those dormant topics head-on."
