Sweden born-singer and rapper Yung Lean just announced some wonderful news for his fans.
First, he’ll be dropping a new album called Stranger in November, and to introduce it he released a single titled “Hunting My Own Skin," which you can hear above. Plus, the 21-year-old just announced a slew of North American tour dates and will stop at places like the Royale in Boston, the Bluebird Theater in Denver and Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre. You can get tickets to all of those shows here.
It was just a few years ago that Lean started to make a name for himself after he released his 2013 mixtape “Unknown Death 2002” and posted songs to YouTube like “Yoshi City,” “Kyoto” and “Ginseng Strip.” All of that output led to a sizable buzz for the young vocalist, and when he dropped his sophomore effort Warlord in 2016, his staying power was evident.
That might be due to his ability to switch back and forth from rapping to singing quite seamlessly, which he displays on his new single “Hunting My Own Skin.”
Arguably, the coolest part of the song is its catchy key riff that has a playful, carnival feel to it, while Lean talks about his fun lifestyle. He also crafts some strong melodies throughout the cut, which pulls you into his verses that much more.
It's safe to assume that the hardworking artist will perform “Hunting My My Own Skin,” as well as other songs from the Stranger album on his North American tour, starting Jan. 3 at the Fonda Theatre.
