Denzel Curry shares new single ‘Walkin’, announces 2022 North American, UK and Europe tour

The new song is the first to be lifted from the rapper's forthcoming album 'Melt My Eyez See Your Future'

Denzel Curry has shared a new single, ‘Walkin’, the first to be lifted from his forthcoming album ‘Melt My Eyez See Your Future’.

The new cut sees the Florida-raised rapper deliver a powerhouse vocal performance, spitting rapid-fire bars above an atmospheric, Kal Banx-produced beat.

‘Walkin’ arrives alongside a sci-fi and western-themed video directed by Adrian Villagomez, in which Curry journeys across a desolate desert planet before a final confrontation with John Wayne. Watch that below:

Curry announced ‘Melt My Eyez See Your Future’ earlier this month with a teaser video, revealing the album would feature contributions from T-Pain, Slowthai, Rico Nasty, Kenny Beats, JPEGMAFIA, Thundercat, Robert Glasper and more. A release date is yet to be announced.

“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,” Curry explains of the forthcoming album, the follow-up to 2019’s ‘Zuu’.

“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.”

In addition, Curry has announced North American, UK and European tour dates for 2022. The run kicks off in April in Denver and continues along throughout the US and the UK/Europe until August. See dates below.

In 2020, Curry and Kenny Beats linked up to release joint EP ‘Unlocked’, following it up with a remix project, ‘Unlocked 1.5’, last year.
