Denzel Curry shares “Walkin,” the first single from his forthcoming album Melt My Eyez See Your Future, which he announced is coming soon with an official album trailer earlier this month. Additionally, in support of the forthcoming project, he also reveals the dates for his world tour kicking off this spring in North America and running through performances in Europe and the United Kingdom this summer.
“Walkin” arrives with an epic Sci-Fi Western visual directed by Adrian Villagomez which sees Denzel trekking across a desert planet before a cinematic face-off with his antagonist, John Wayne. The Kal Banx-produced song steadily builds into one of the most dynamic rap performances from Curry to-date, foreshadowing what is to come from Melt My Eyez See Your Future.
The end of 2021 marked the end of an era – the ending of Denzel’s characters and alter egos. Describing his upcoming album Melt My Eyez See Your Future, he says: “I like traditional hip hop, I like drum and bass, I like trap, I like poetry, so a lot of that is going to be interwoven in this album including jazz and a lot of genres that I came up on as a kid and just being in my parents’ house. This album is made up of everything that I couldn’t give you on TA13OO or Imperial because I was going through depression anger issues.”
New music from Denzel arrives following his first new standalone single in a year with last summer’s “The Game,” which appeared on the Madden NFL 2022 soundtrack. Last year Denzel additionally connected with Robert Glasper for an exclusive Record Store Day release of their joint album Live From Leimert Park as well as appearing on the new season of TV series’ The Choe Show and an episode of Dave (FX).
This week Denzel caught up with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe to discuss the new single, which was also the cover of Apple’s New Music Daily playlist today.
