DUCKWRTH’S NEW SINGLE “FALL BACK” OUT NOW

NEW PROJECT FALLING MAN COMING THIS FALL

Critically acclaimed Los Angeles rapper DUCKWRTH releases his new single “Fall Back” today.

“Fall Back” thrives on the energy that has transformed Duckwrth into a rising phenomenon among tastemakers and audiences. It’s the perfect anthem to close out summer, kick off a new chapter, and herald his forthcoming project Falling Man—arriving this fall.

Duckwrth has taken hip-hop by storm on his own terms in 2018. At SXSW, he notably tore up ten different stages, including VEVO, Tumblr, Pandora, Clash Mag, Twitter, and more. Across the Atlantic, Pharrell personally chose him to open for N.E.R.D. at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. He’s currently preparing for his Afropunk debut in Brooklyn later this month and for his first US & Europe Headlining tour which kicks off October 5th in Santa Ana, CA. Purchase tickets HERE.

DUCKWRTH started igniting waves with the release of his 2016 independent album I’M UUGLY. The standout “I’M DEAD” [feat. Sabrina Claudio] cumulatively racked up over 4 million streams in addition to garnering acclaim from XXL, Vibe, Respect Mag, Fact, San Francisco Chronicle, and more. He released his 2nd project “An XTRA UGLY Mixtape” late last year to rave reviews. Paper magazine described him by saying “…think Outkast meets N.E.R.D meets something entirely out of this world.”

Conceived as a story by DUCKWRTH and Mettenarrative, the cinematic clip lives up to his reputation as the game’s most intriguing new outlier.

Highsnobiety wrote, “DUCKWRTH’s an XTRA UUGLY Mixtape was among our favorite under the radar hip-hop releases of last year, a collection of sharply-honed songs that fully displayed why the LA-based rapper has so rapidly built a devoted a fanbase.”

“Boy” stands out as the latest single to be released from his applauded 2018 project an XTRA UUGLY Mixtape—available now.

Paper recently praised him writing, “The rapper, for lack of a better descriptor expertly blends hip hop, funk and rock to create a truly eccentric and undisputedly unique sound (think Outkast meets N.E.R.D. meets something entirely out of this world.

Since the release of his sophomore project, an XTRA UUGLY Mixtape, in November, “Duckwrth hit the ground running.” (XXL) He toured North America alongside Rich Brian, performing more than 30 shows in less than two months. He collaborated with Urban Outfitters for an exclusive in-store release of his ‘BOY’ t-shirts and XTRA UUGLY cassette tapes, as well as connected with the brand for a special live performance at Space 1520 in Hollywood. He dominated headlines at SXSW in Austin, where he was named one of the festival’s best new artists by Paste Magazine and blessed the lineups of 10 showcases including Pandora, VEVO, Tumblr and Clash Magazine. While Duckwrth has been on the road, his music has continued to grow with tracks like “I’m Dead” ft. Sabrina Claudio and “Rare Panther + Beach House” combining for over 3M streams on Spotfiy. His Michael Jackson-inspired music video for “MICHUUL.” has racked up nearly 500K views and the track was featured on HULU’s Mary Kills People and in EA Games’ Need For Speed. Duckwrth’s music also recently received placements on HBO’s Bill Maher, ESPN’s Music of the Month and Amazon Music’s Q1 Radio Campaign. With recent profiles by ILY Mag, i-D, Clash Magazine and Afropunk, upcoming festival appearances at Bonnaroo, Westward Festival and Afropunk, and more new visuals on the way, Duckwrth is showing why he’s been called “LA’s newest, and arguably soon to be best export.” (Paper Mag)
