Fresh from a 2022 Kerrang! Award nomination for Best Album, Denzel Curry has performed several tracks from Melt My Eyez See Your Future as part of a six-song Tiny Desk Concert.

NPR Music have unveiled their latest Tiny Desk to celebrate Black Music Month, with this instalment of curated performances showcasing 'a celebration of Black artists expressing themselves in ways we've never seen before'.

Denzel was joined by his 10-piece group named the Cold-Blooded Soul Band for the excellent set, which opened with the one-two-three of Melt My Eyez tracks Melt Session #1, Walkin and Troubles. Then the musician threw things back with DIET_, CLOUT COBAIN | CLOUT CO13A1N and RICKY.

Speaking to K! earlier this year about his genre-hopping style, Denzel proudly stated: “I have crazy versatility. And I feel like people sleep on me, they just think I’m a one-trick pony. And I’m not. The rock community want me to make a rock album, but I’m not well-versed in that. I want to cater to everybody.”
