(July 9, 2020) – On the heels of his recent single “Chicken Tenders,” Florida-native Dominic Fike returns to announce his highly-anticipated debut album. What Could Possibly Go Wrong is out July 31st via Columbia Records and includes the aforementioned “Chicken Tenders” and “Politics & Violence,” the latter of which is out today. The track comes with a Reed Bennett-directed visual that finds the album cover come to life as lyrics and footage of Dom are projected onto an otherworldly landscape.
The album was initially delayed in light of the protests that have spread across America, which Fike addressed in addition to detailing his own history with police brutality in a powerful essay he shared with fans. He also spoke with Brockhampton’s Kevin Abstract for a conversation that further contextualizes the forthcoming album as well as appeared in Anderson .Paak’s “Lockdown” video that poignantly addresses the protests and current political climate.
The attention on Dominic Fike has steadily grown since the release of his EP Don’t Forget About Me, Demos, via Columbia Records in 2018. From that initial release, he’s continued to rise as one of his generation’s most enigmatic pop stars. Last year, his hit single “3 Nights” reach #1 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart in September, he collaborated with Omar Apollo on “Hit Me Up” and “Phone Numbers,” the latter of which he performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with Kenny Beats and saw an Aidan Cullen-directed music video featuring Halsey. Dom also appeared on the covers of BRICK and Notion Magazine in addition to marquee features in The FADER, Interview Magazine etc. in addition to touring the the world on his sold out Rain or Shine tour.
Listen to and watch “Politics & Violence” above, see album details below, and stay tuned for more from Dominic Fike coming soon.
