Days prior to the release of the album, Brian released snippets for the tracks "The Sailor" and "Rapapapa". In an interview with Complex about the album and how it was different from his last project, Brian said: The biggest change is the writing has improved a lot. I realized on this album that I can title it anything; when I was making it, I was still kind of learning about writing and still trying to find my style.

And I wasn't sure, like,'OK, what can I write about?' I thought you can run out of things to talk about, but you cannot. You can talk about anything. It's just a matter of. On this album, I am writing about things that are really personal to me. I am just trying to be as vulnerable as possible. Production-wise, too, I'm collaborating a lot more versus me doing it all by myself. On this album, I'm learning to let things go a little bit, while not sacrificing my creative freedom; the album's lead single, "Yellow" was released on 26 June 2019, along with an accompanied music video and features vocals from singer and producer Bēkon.

List of professorships at the University of Cambridge

This is a list of professorships at the University of Cambridge. During the early history of the University of Cambridge, the title professor denoted a doctor who taught in the university, a usage that continues to be found in, for example, US universities. However, from the 16th century onwards in Cambridge it was used to denote those holding "chairs", founded by the university in a particular subject or endowed by a benefaction. On occasion the University of Cambridge creates professorships for the benefit of a single individual, the chair ceasing to exist when that individual resigns, dies, or retires; these "personal" professorships limited to one tenure are not listed here. The Regius Professorships are "royal" professorships, being created by the reigning monarch; the first five Regius Professorships, sometimes referred to as the Henrician Regius Professors, were granted arms and crests in 1590.

Indian filter coffee

South Indian filter coffee is a coffee drink made by mixing frothed and boiled milk with the infusion obtained by percolation brewing of finely ground coffee powder in a traditional Indian filter. The drink known as Kaapi, is the South Indian phonetic rendering of "coffee"; the drink is referred to as Madras filter coffee, Madras kaapi, Kumbakonam degree coffee, Mylapore filter coffee, or Mysore filter coffee. Outside India the term "filter coffee" may refer to drip brew coffee, a distinct form of preparing coffee. Coffee has been grown in India since the 1600s, when it was first brought to India from Yemen by Muslim saint Baba Budan; the most used coffee beans are arabica and robusta. These are grown in different states of South India, such as in the hills of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh; the beans are medium-roasted and finely ground and blended with roasted chicory. The final coffee powder composition is equal quantities of Plantation A and Peaberry with between 10% and 30% chicory added, producing a distinct aroma and colour in the resulting brewed coffee.

South Indian filter coffee is brewed with a metal device that resembles two cylindrical cups, one of which has a pierced bottom that nests into the top of the'tumbler' cup, leaving ample room beneath to receive the brewed coffee. The upper cup has two removable parts: a pierced pressing disc with a central stem handle and a covering lid; the upper cup is loaded with freshly ground coffee. The grounds are compressed with the stemmed disc into a uniform layer across the cup's pierced bottom; the coarser the coffee grinds, the more one must tamp the coffee to obtain the same extraction. With the press disc remaining in place, the upper cup is nested into the top of the tumbler; the lid is placed on top, the appliance is left to drip the brewed coffee into the bottom. The chicory retains the hot water longer, letting the water dissolve and extract more of the ground coffee; the resulting brew is much stronger than Western drip/filter coffee, stronger than espresso. Traditionally, the coffee is consumed by adding 1–2 tablespoons of the brew to a cup of boiling milk with the preferred amount of sugar.

The coffee is drunk from the tumbler, but is cooled first with a dabarah - "dabarah": a wide metal saucer with lipped walls. Coffee is served after pouring back and forth between the dabara and the tumbler in huge arc-like motions of the hand; this serves several purposes: mixing the ingredients thoroughly. An anecdote related to the distance between the pouring and receiving cup leads to another name for the drink, "Meter Coffee". Coffee is something of a cultural icon in Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh the Coastal Andhra regions, whereas in Telangana and Kerala, Chai is a cultural icon, it is customary to offer a cup of tea to any visitor. Coffee was introduced by Baba Budan to South India in the 17th century and became popular under British rule; until the middle of the 20th century traditional households would not use granulated sugar but used jaggery or honey in coffee. Popular Indian lore says that on a pilgrimage to Mecca in the 16th century Baba Budan, a revered Sufi saint from Karnataka state, discovered the wonders of coffee.

Eager to grow coffee at home, he smuggled seven coffee beans from the Yemeni port of Mocha in his garments. Returning home, he planted the beans on the slopes of the Chandragiri Hills in Chickmagaluru district, Mysore State; this hill range was named after him as the Baba Budan Hills. His tomb is near Chikmagalur. Rev. Edward Terry, chaplain to Sir Thomas Roe, an ambassador at the court of Emperor Jehangir, provides a detailed account of its usage: "many of the people there, who are strict in their religion, drink no wine at all. Notwithstanding it is good to help digestion, to quicken the spirits, to cleanse the blood."The British East India Company brought in fresh influences. David Burton, a food historian based in New Zealand writes in his book The Raj at Table "India's first coffee house opened in Calcutta after the battle of Plassey in 1780. Soon after, John Jackson and Cottrell Barrett opened the original Madras Coffee House, followed in 1792 by the Exchange Coffee Tavern at the Muslim, waited at the mouth of the Madras Fort.

The enterprising proprietor of the latter announced he was going to run his coffee house on the same lines as Lloyd's in London, by maintaining a register of the arrival and departure of ships, offering Indian and European newspapers for his customers to read. Other houses offered free use of billiard tables, recovering their costs with the high price of one rupee for a single dish of coffee."Indian filter coffee was popularised by the India Coffee Houses run by the Coffee Board of India since the mid-1940s. It became the drink of millions after the emergence of more popular Indian Coffee Houses in the mid-1950s. Indian filter coffee migrated overseas in the early 20th century to Malaysia and
