Pusha T Announces ‘Darkest Before Dawn’ Tour Dates
Pusha T will be hitting the road early next year. The tour kicks off on March 3rd in Vancouver, with a 28-date run that traverses North America before he heads off to Europe, culminating at a Warsaw show on May 3rd. Tickets go on sale on Friday, the same day King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude is released.
The follow-up to My Name Is My Name, his second solo album features collaborations with Kanye West, A$AP Rocky, Jill Scott, Khelani, The-Dream and Beanie Siegal. Producers include Timbaland, Q-Tip, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Hudson Mohawke and Diddy.
While his solo debut LP came out two years ago, Pusha T told Rolling Stone that the albums are sonically different. “I feel like My Name Is My Name is a bit more lighthearted than what I just created,” he said. “I sat with Timbaland, I sat with Kanye, I sat with Sean Combs, Boi-1da, Nashiem Myrick, Mario Winans, Baauer, Mano and got from each of them the darkest part of their souls on these beats, and it marries everything I’m doing right now lyrically.”
“There’s nothing low-key about it,” he added. “I feel like the album is very aggressive and very abrasive. It jumps out at you. Lyrically, I’m always one for clarity and I don’t think people will miss anything.”
The rapper has previously shared singles from the album, including “Crutches, Crosses, Caskets” and “Untouchable.” On Tuesday, he debuted “Sunshine” on The Daily Show.
