Action Bronson Details New Album Only for Dolphins, Shares New Song

By Madison Bloom

Action Bronson has announced his next album. It’s called Only for Dolphins and it arrives September 25 via Loma Vista. The new LP draws from a number of genres, including Turkish psych, reggae, French film music, lovers rock, and Russian funk, according to a press release. Only for Dolphins includes production from Bronson, the Alchemist, Budgie, Samiyam, Daringer, and more. Meyhem Lauren and Hologram will also features as guest MCs.

Ahead of the record, Bronson has shared a new Budgie-produced single called “Golden Eye.” Listen to that below, and scroll down to find the LP art (painted by Bronson) and tracklist.

“The dolphin is one of the most intelligent creatures ever created on whatever planet we're on,” Action Bronson said in a press release. “They have their own way of communicating. They have nuance and intangibles like we do.” Bronson also compared the dolphin to a “five-tool” baseball player. “The only people who understand me are those five-tool players, those higher beings who are on the same telepathic wave as me,” he said.

In addition to the album, Bronson will be releasing a signature scent called “Splash,” as well as dolphin stuffed animals, his own ice cream flavor (a burnt guava marshmallow tres leches), and a corresponding ice cream cake, both in partnership with Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream. “I get inspiration from all around the world and I make what I want,” Bronson said. “I wanted to make sure that I hit everything on this project. We’re giving you the auditory. We’re giving you the visual. The olfactory. Your taste buds. There isn’t a physical sensation that Only for Dolphins doesn’t cover.”

Action Bronson’s most recent full-length album was 2018’s White Bronco. Last year, Bronson dropped his Lamb Over Rice EP.
