Machine Gun Kelly has dropped his first new single of 2021 – you can hear his new track “Daywalker!” a collaboration with CORPSE, below.
The track follows on from the release in September of Kelly’s latest album Tickets To My Downfall. After teasing the song on social media earlier this week, Kelly has now released his collaboration with CORPSE – the musician and YouTuber also known as Corpse Husband – in the form of “Daywalker!”
“Daywalker!” follows on from an interview Kelly gave to the LA radio station KROQ earlier this week in which he expressed his desire to “keep breaking the mould” with his upcoming material.
Kelly, who also said that he wanted to “p_s people off all over again”, explained: “Even when I say, ’Break the mould and p_s people off all over again’, I just mean make them think again; make them have a moment of like, ’This artist is so polarizing [that] I have to tune in’.
“Because I don’t want to be bored with an artist, and I think Kanye [West]’s a great example of that. We all have moments of sitting at dinner tables talking about Kanye and being like, ’I didn’t like this!’ or, ’I loved this!’ or, ’Why is he doing that?!’”
Additionally, Machine Gun Kelly is set to appear alongside his daughter in a new film titled One Way. The rapper (real name Colson Baker) will be joined by his daughter Casie Baker in the upcoming thriller, Deadline reports.
Joining them onscreen will be the likes of Storm Reid (Euphoria), Kevin Bacon and Travis Fimmel. Andrew Baird is directing the film from a script written by Ben Conway.
According to the outlet, MGK will portray a character called Freddy who “goes on the run with a bag full of cash after a robbery of his former crime boss goes wrong”. His estranged father (played by Bacon) will betray him by telling the boss his whereabouts.
“With his life slipping through his fingers, Freddy is left with very few choices to survive,” Deadline writes.
