A.B. Original Return With Huge New Single ‘BLACCOUT’

Written by Tom Williams on March 14, 2018

Rap duo A.B. Original have returned with their first piece of new material since their debut album Reclaim Australia arrived to critical acclaim back in 2016.

Briggs and Trials’ latest anthem, ‘BLACCOUT’, turns up the ante with air sirens, booming percussion and some trap influences, giving the track a bit of a Run The Jewels vibe along the way.

After a huge 2017, which included a fat stack of awards (including the Australian Music Prize) and support slots with Midnight Oil and 50 Cent, A.B. Original are currently working on a new record, with Briggs telling triple j:

“Our whole approach is: we do another album when we need to, when we want to. If Guns N’ Roses only ever did Appetite [For Destruction], that’d be enough. But should we decide to reach back and release this backhand again, we will.”
