DRUGDEALER – ” Hiding In Plain Sight “

Posted: August 24, 2022 in MUSIC

Michael Collins’ first new album with the project since 2019, arrives in October, Aka Drugdealer have announced a new album, which is the follow-up to 2019’s “Raw Honey“. The Michael Collins–led, Los Angeles–based project will release “Hiding in Plain Sight” on October 28th via Mexican Summer Records. Check out the video for lead single “Someone to Love,” directed by Collins and James Manson.

The third and most seasoned Drugdealer album, “Hiding In Plain Sight”, almost didn’t happen at all. Frustrated and insecure with his own singing voice prior to the pandemic, Drugdealer founder and primary songwriter Michael Collins was nearly ready to throw in the towel. With hits like “Suddenly” and “The Real World” (from the band’s 2016 debut, “The End Of Comedy”) and “Honey” (from their first album for Mexican Summer, 2019’s “Raw Honey”), 

“Someone to Love’ came out of an impromptu extended jam that my band and I developed show by show on the last full U.S. tour,” Collins said in a statement. “Then when we got home and I started working on this new stuff I realized it was one of the best moments of us naturally playing. I turned it into a fully fleshed out song about wanting to be truly loved unconditionally, and pretty instantly became my favourite thing I had written and pretty much still sits there.” The song features contributions from John Carroll Kirby and Video Age.

Drugdealer have also announced a headlining tour in North America
