A recharged Stalley is ready to make some noise to close out 2019. The Ohio native delivered a reflective single on Tuesday (Sept. 17) with “All So New,” which features laid-back production from California beatmaker Jansport J.
Stalley gets candid about the ups and downs of his turbulent career, as well as the music game’s impact on his mental health. “Holistic psychedelics brought of mental change/ Clear as the water, my thoughts became pure/ Anxiety and stress I had to endure/ Was barely outside, I had to keep it indoors/ My sanity I had to fend for/ Less or more the importance of allure was taking over my core/ Off-center for sure, my balance on the floor,” the Blue Collar Gang frontman raps.
“It’s my story,” Stalley said of the inspiration behind his new music. “I’ve been getting closer to my fans lately, so I really wanted to let them in and have them be a part of my growth and transition into independence. By being independent and having total control of my career, I now have the freedom to create freely and bare my whole self to my true supporters.”
In addition to releasing fresh tunes, the 36-year-old will be hitting the road as part of The Head Trip Tour later this fall. The 12-city trek kicks off in Chicago on Nov. 7, before making stops in Cleveland, Philly, Los Angeles and NYC.
