American Christian hip hop artist and Reach Records lyrical powerhouse, Andy Mineo released his last single accompanied by an amazing visual titled “Herman Miller” today, from his upcoming EP, Happy Thoughts, out December 2 via Reach Records.
Andy Mineo explains that the track, “Not only celebrates my recent love of fine furniture, but also represents the excellence in craftsmanship that I look to bring to my music.”
Set to inventive, boundary-pushing beatmaking, Happy Thoughts, is the perfect salve for anyone struggling through the many challenges 2020 has brought us all. The record, inspired by a trip to Japan with his Miner League crew prior to the COVID shutdown, beams with positive affirmations and ruminations on the prismatic nature of life.
Happy Thoughts is but the latest mile marker in the Syracuse-born, Mineo’s impressive career. After a formative adolescence containing its own highs and lows, he turned to music as his creative outlet and hasn’t looked back since, nabbing Gold-certified singles like 2014’s “You Can’t Stop Me” and sharing the stage with rap luminaries like Logic, John Bellion, and Fetty Wap. He’s collaborated with musical kin like !llmind, Phonte, Marc E. Bassy, and Lecrae, and has built a formidable discography, beloved by his passionate fanbase.
This latest release also comes after a series of hardships and triumphs in Mineo’s life. After his mother passed away in 2018, he put several projects—including the sequel to his beloved 2014 EP Never Land—on hold and released Work in Progress, a collection of never-before-released rarities, along with a behind-the-scenes podcast of the same name, as he took some time away from the studio to recharge.
