The estate of Lil Peep took to the late rapper’s social media to tease the follow-up to 2017’s Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 1 earlier this month. The album was Peep’s (born Gustav Ahr) last before passing away at the age of 21 in Nov. 2017.
A few days after the album tease, Peep’s mother Liza Womack revealed Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 2 was on the way and shared the first song, “Cry Alone.”
Now, his family is sharing the next single, “Runaway.” Check out the new track below.
The video was directed by Womack and Steven Mertens. Peep’s mother shared some words about the video, explaining why she picked the song as a single.
“[Runaway] is a powerful song that tells the story of how Gus—aka Lil Peep—had decided to leave his apartment in LA, but he didn’t want to come home to live in Long Beach, either. So, he had gone to stay in London. That was a productive and happy time for him—working with friends like Smokeasac and ILoveMakonnen.”
“This video tells that part of Gus’s story. The story is told using many of Gus’s drawings, from different periods of his life,” Womack continues. “After transforming into the wonderful “flaming-haired” character that Gus drew, himself, he flies away from LAX to London—to make music with some of his best friends.”
“I know you will enjoy watching it. You will see different things each time you watch,” she adds. “His drawings. His tattoos. His friends. The house where he really lived. And his dog, Taz, the ‘legend’.”
Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 2 comes out Nov. 9.
Lil Peep’s other posthumous releases
Peep’s memory has continued to live on since his passing from an emotional memorial service (where it was revealed Peep’s music would continue to be released) to a posthumous video for “Save That Shit” this past December.
This year, several tracks featuring Peep have been released. Womack follows intentions to continue to release the music and art that Peep had planned to do himself in 2018.
“Peep brought an excitement to music that was unparalleled to anybody I’ve ever met,” Marshmello said of his collaboration with Peep.
“We started an idea together, that unfortunately we were never able to officially finish together. When I listen to this track now I get chills wishing he could hear it. This record is dedicated to Peep’s mother, family, friends and his fans. Gus will live forever through his music and that is something we should all be extremely thankful for.”
A few days after “Spotlight,” Peep’s “Got Em Like” with Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa was released. The track appears on Juicy J’s new 21-track mixtape #shutdafukup.
The ILoveMakonnen-helmed “Falling Down,” a posthumous collab with Peep and XXXTentacion, was released in August. Another version of the track, “Sunlight On Your Skin” with ILoveMakonnen was released in September.
