British rapper, songwriter and producer Archy Ivan Marshall, aka King Krule, has announced his new album Man Alive! and has released an accompanying video for his new song, “(Don’t Let The Dragon) Draag On.” The album is set to release on February 21st of this year.
The video showcases Krule’s nuanced ability to disturbingly yet subtly rap over his self produced beats, which share the same unique approach as his rapping. The video, which Krule directed himself, is a black and white, continuous shot of Krule rapping, slowly revealing him upon a burning wooden stake, exposing the fearful truth the song plays to reveal.
King Krule’s most recent project, The OOZ, was released back in 2017; the album appealed to international artists, and propelled Krule onto the forefront of alternative rap.
