Before Grieves kicks off the Running Wild Tour, the Seattle native has dropped the Running Wild album. Comprised of 15 tracks, Running Wild marks Grieves’ first full-length project since 2014’s Winter & The Wolves.
Beginning with “Postcards,” the album balances Grieves’ sense of humor with more introspective musings on mental health over a handful of soul-infused beats. Recorded in Seattle and Stockholm, it was produced by Swedish beatsmith Chords, and features guest appearances from Fearce Vill, Romaro Franceswa, Paris Alexa, and Davey Jones.
Throughout the 51-minute offering, Grieves wrestles with his inner turmoil, including depression and anxiety.
The Running Wild Tour begins on August 31 in Portland, Oregon with Rhymesayers labelmate deM atlaS.
