In a new interview with GQ, Danny Brown shares the musical inspiration behind his upcoming album Old, which is scheduled for release on September 30.
The Detroit MC explains there's a keen difference between artists from his hometown and somewhere like New York, which affects the music that he creates. "In New York, you go out every day and do shit. Detroit, you stay in the house for days. I think it’s what makes us experimental. You’re trapped inside and bored. My new album is very emotional. It’s a party album, but it’s dark," he says.
Danny Brown went on to list other Detroit artists that have journeyed down their own eclectic path, similar to himself. "You gotta see Detroit as what it is: the city that made Juan Atkins, same city that made Jack White, same city that made Eminem."
