Produced by DAKARI, the Bay Area rapper’s latest track is a sequel to fan favourite, ‘Tumblr Girls’, which appears on his breakout 2014 album, ‘These Things Happen’.
‘Running Wild’ is accompanied by a visual that also pays ode to the original song’s video, featuring hazy cutaways and Polaroid stills of different women, directed by G-Eazy, Joshua Reis and 2mattyb (Revels Group co-owner, Matt Bauerschmidt).
It’s not been confirmed whether the track will appear on G’s upcoming new album ‘These Things Happen Too’, but judging from a recent post on the rapper’s Instagram about ‘Running Wild’ it looks likely it will land on his fifth studio album.
“7 years ago I made ‘Tumblr Girls’ in an air bnb when I was living out of a suitcase working on my first album – unsigned – telling stories I hadn’t even got the chance to personally live yet. I was still a kid on the outside chasing a dream,” G-Eazy wrote.
“I appreciate your patience over the last few years as I’ve been trying to put my all into making sure this album does it all justice. I appreciate every step of the journey and every single person who’s been a part of it.”
The forthcoming song, which is titled ‘Breakdown’, is produced by DAKARI and features Demi Lovato; it is confirmed to appear on ‘These Things Happen Too’ – pre-order it here.

Last month, G-Eazy appears on the official soundtrack for Space Jam sequel A New Legacy.
The much anticipated animated/live-action film starring LeBron James landed in UK and US cinemas – and via HBO Max – on July 16, and its all-star soundtrack arrived a week before the film’s release.
Other recent tracks from G include ‘A Little More’, ‘Down’, ‘Love Is Gone’, as well as ‘Nostalgia Cycle’ and ‘Stan By Me’, the latter two of which appear on his last album, ‘Everything’s Strange Here’.
