Following Frazer's lauded 2021 debut, Into the Blue is expansive-a daring blend of soul, psychedelia, spaghetti western, disco, gospel and hip-hop, representing the impressive range of Frazer's sonic talents. "It's the clearest portrait of who I am as an artist," Frazer says of the album, which sees him maintaining the unmistakable falsetto and classic songwriting he's known for but with a hip-hop mentality at its core, weaving together genres and production techniques to plant Into The Blue firmly in the now.

Into The Blue was conceived out of heartbreak. Following the end of a long relationship, Frazer moved cross-country from Brooklyn to Los Angeles and embarked on a journey that's reflected in the album's themes of grief, loneliness, and searching for healing. Featuring moments of towering arrangements, recalling David Axelrod and Ennio Merricone, Into The Blue is balanced by rawness, incorporating iPhone recordings and one-take vocals. Frazer enlisted Grammy-winner Alex Goose as co-producer for the album, known for his crate-digging samples and collaborations with hip-hop artists like Freddie Gibbs, Madlib and Brockhampton. Frazer also experimented with samples for the first time on a record, drawing from unexpected sources like 90s R&B group Hi-Five.
