ALLDAY RELEASES 'SPEEDING' TODAY + ANNOUNCES IN-STORE APPEARANCES

The stratosphere is the limit for intrepid LA-based Australian rapper Allday. Today he releases his anticipated second LP Speeding. The cerebral MC has touched back down on our shores, and has this week announced a series of in-store appearances. 

The Allday juggernaut has been in full swing since mesmerising latest single 'In Motion' dropped last month, a collaboration with electro wunderkind Japanese Wallpaper. Gifting fans another cut from the album via The 405 this week, Allday has unveiled 'Baby Spiders', featuring piping hot teenage rap star Mallrat. This is one seriously irresistible, understated banger. Classic Allday.

Speeding represents a significant step in Allday’s writing career, seeing him effortlessly balancing his songwriting and production. Intimately chronicling a difficult period for the Adelaide-born rapper, Allday fearlessly leaves nothing in the bag here. Honest and charismatic, it's already winning praise in both the US and Australia. The LP premiered via cult US outlet Mass Appeal, and 'In Motion' has dug in with significant global Spotify traction. Allday's music also features in Netflix and Marvel's Iron Fist series, alongside royalty like Wu-Tang Clan, Warren G, Skepta and more.

 

Back at home, The Music branded the LP "strikingly contemporary". Acid Stag raved on 'In Motion' saying, "dayum does it work well!". Stack Magazine posed the important (spot on) question, “Anyone else get massive Drake vibes from Allday lately?” then insisting that that the record "hits right in that rap/pop sweet spot." And Junkee revealed an extensive, tell-all profile piece this week.  

 

It's been a huge release week, with the artist flying across the nation partying with capital city fans who'd pre-ordered Speeding at private pre-release album listening parties. Next up, the public can get up close and personal: he's announced in-store appearances in Perth at 78 Records on Friday 21 April (today), Sydney at Red Eye Records on Saturday 22 April, Melbourne at 24 Hundred on Sunday 23 April and Adelaide in Rundle Mall (Stephens Place) on Thursday 27 April. Fans can get their gear signed, meet Allday and pick up the new album. In Melbourne only, the 24 Hundred store will be supplying all your Allday merch swag needs. Tell your mates.

 

All this leads into a wild few months for Allday, as he prepares to bring the heat to the Groovin' The Moo main stage before embarking on his huge album tour in July, looking to pack out the biggest venues he's headlined to date. And as if that's not enough, the talented performer has also claimed a slot on the gargantuan Splendour In The Grass line-up. A seasoned pro on-stage in both clubs and festivals, all dates are now selling fast. Tickets on sale now via alldaytunes.com.
