Featuring six new tracks, which include the long-teased “My Jacket Don’t Fit You,” “Tell Shyanne” and “OUT OF MY BODY” featuring 6LACK, the Milwaukee-bred rapper not only continues a prolific 2023, but impresses once more with FUNERAL’s continuation.
“OUT OF MY BODY” seamlessly melds 6LACK’s and DC The Don’s aesthetic together, as the latter floats over the track’s flowing production with ethereal crooning while 6LACK contrasts this with potent soft-spoken bars.
The deluxe largely highlights DC The Don’s taste for alternative sounds and experimentation. Other new cuts like “Let’s Pretend?”, “WAY TOO MUCH,” “melatonin” and “I’m losing it” not only showcase Donny’s influence of 2000s-esque indie rock and pop, but takes it a step further with contagious performances that burrow into your rotation.
Ahead of the deluxe’s release, Donny’s 2023 has been nothing short of impressive: A XXL Freshman, main stage festival slots at Summer Smash and Rolling Loud Miami, touring with $NOT and Eem Triplin were just the tip of the iceberg. Preparing to embark on the “(P)REBIRTH Tour” in October, the coveted new wave star wowed fans with singles in “Stop Hating” and the newly-added album cut “Tell Shyanne,” which features Iayze (Jace!). The tour also alludes to DC The Don’s next album REBIRTH. Perhaps a release from the road?
Speaking with us at Summer Smash in July, Donny revealed he has a plethora of projects on the way, which include REBIRTH and other anticipated records in Stop Being So Nice, The Rumors Are True, and WISCONSIN. If this is the sonic afterlife post-FUNERAL, fans are in for another lively run.
