Denzel Curry unleashes rock-inspired single for Dark Nights: Death Metal
The song is a collaboration with PlayThatBoiZay for the Dark Nights: Death Metal soundtrack, and was inspired by the idea to “do a rock record” in the studio.
“I was in the studio one day with Zay [PlayThatBoiZay] and Kwesi [Kwes Darko], and Zay had this idea to do a rock record,” explains Denzel. “At first I wasn’t really with it, my fans been wanting me to try it for a while but I honestly don’t want to be looked at as ‘the rock guy’ or be put in a box for my art, you know?
“I have this motto that I use in the studio, though, of ‘shoot first, ask questions later’, so after a few convos we called up my homie Spencer from Trash Talk and made it happen. Some of you might love it and some might even hate it. For us, it was an experiment.”
The Dark Nights: Death Metal soundtrack will be released digitally on June 18, and physically on July 16, via Loma Vista Recordings.
