Today Marcus King announced his new album called “Mood Swings”. The album is produced by Rick Rubin and will be released on April 5. Along with the announcement of his new album, the singer also announces a tour of North America and Europe. “Mood Swings” is King’s masterpiece and forms an eclectic symphony of soul that is both timeless and current. Based on King’s darkest moments, the album’s writing became a beacon of hope for King, and the songs will be a refuge for anyone facing similar challenges in life.

In conjunction with the album announcement, King has released the title track, “Mood Swings”. The song features a special drum sound and jazz-like guitar, leaving room for King’s soulful vocals. He shares his deepest fears while standing in the power of being completely vulnerable and honest.

With his new album “Mood Swings” Marcus takes us in a completely different direction than his previous studio albums. The album combines widely varying elements of modern pop, R&B, hip-hop from the noughties, classic rock and the warm sounds of classic soul, R&B and jazz. The previously released song “Fck My Life Up Again” is a special distortion of rock, with strings over a smoky jazz beat, while his soulful voice sounds: ‘Come fck my life up again, don’t deserve to live without pain.’

The album closes with the song “Cadillac”, this song tells a moving story of dark desires and suicidal thoughts. On “Mood Swings” we hear Marcus King stronger and more honest than ever: It is a rebirth of both his sound and his spirit. ‘“’Without this collection of songs, I don’t think I would still be here,” says King of the album, “I hope this album can serve as a warm blanket, a salvation, or a refuge for anyone struggling with mental health, or relationship problems. That’s what it is for me.’

In October and November the American musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist Marcus King will come to Europe for some shows.
