British artist, Bakar has released his brand-new single, “Good News” today. Originally making its debut at Givenchy’s Fall/Winter 23 Men’s show during Paris Fashion Week, the new track further dives into Bakar’s genre-bending sound, which effortlessly bridges the gap between Indie, Hip-hop, Punk and Rock. The stunning track can be heard now below.
Launched on Zane Lowe’s ‘New Music Daily’ show, alongside an interview, “Good News” follows up Bakar’s 2022 debut album Nobody’s Home, and the 2019 EP Will You Be My Yellow? which features “Hell N Back”– the sleeper hit that became Bakar’s first US No.1 on the Adult Alternative Airplay Songs chart. The celebrated 2020 single, “1st Time” marked Bakar’s second track to achieve a No.1 on the Adult Alternative Airplay chart and forms his ever-growing portfolio of work.
For almost a decade, Bakar has been captivating his community of over 3.7M+ monthly listeners on Spotify with his unique brand of music, and has already earned himself accolades with appearances at some of the biggest global platforms – including supporting Travis Scott at his sold out London O2 Arena show in 2022, Reading & Leeds Festival, ColorsxStudios – and an appearance on BBC Radio 1Xtra, where he performed a tribute track in honour of late rapper Mac Miller. Next, he will perform at Coachella on April 15 + 22.
The 28-year-old singer-songwriter is breaking musical stereotypes alongside quickly cementing his name in public consciousness following collaborations in the fashion world (walking for Virgil Abloh’s inaugural Louis Vuitton collection in 2018, and again in 2019 where he also modelled for Prada’s A Gift To Give campaign), and due to his fresh take on the Indie Rock sound; combining honest lyricism and catchy hooks into irresistible sounds.
Bakar straddles the intersection between fashion, culture and music effortlessly, collaborating with revered names in the industry such as Aitch (“In Disguise“), Lancey Foux (“Play“) and Dominic Fike (“Stop Selling Her Drugs“). His music is unapologetically bold and intentional – every lyric conveying the thoughts and lived experiences that speak directly to the listener; “Good News” proves to be yet another example of his unending lyrical prowess and musical mastery.
