Quickly becoming known for being one of his generation’s most exciting live performers, G-Eazy’s incredible skills as an entertainer have not gone unnoticed. Having been named by USA Today one of the best and biggest hip-hop touring acts on the college circuit, G-Eazy has toured relentlessly for years. His most recent tour, “From The Bay To The Universe” which sold more than 100,000 tickets and 60 sold-out shows, took G-Eazy across the globe, including North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. This year, G-Eazy played a slew of the biggest music festivals across North America and Europe, including Outside Lands, Roskilde, Wireless Festival, closing sets at Lollapalooza and Bonaroo, and most recently Austin City Limits.
When It’s Dark Out comes fresh off the heels of G-Eazy’s “Me, Myself & I” with Bebe Rexha, the first single from the album. G-Eazy also recently shared the track “Random” from the album, which can be heard HERE. The album is his most accomplished work to-date, showcasing his cinematic, personal storytelling. The album’s immersive, hard-hitting and sweeping productions include work from G-Eazy himself as well as long-time collaborator Christoph Andersson, Boi-1da, Southside, DJ Spinz, Kane Beatz, and Remo, amongst others. When It’s Dark Out is now available for pre-order at all digital retailers.
