The announcement comes hot off the heels of the release of his first single ‘Fit In’, which has been lighting up the airwaves in New Zealand, plus receiving airplay support from Triple J in Australia. The single peaked at #2 on the NZ Viral Spotify Chart and has reached over 100K streams in rapid time. Production for the first single ‘Fit In’ is at the hands of Melbourne-based Styalz Fuego and Nic M, evoking the feeling of an updated take on early 21st century 2-step. Combining the production with the smooth vocals from British newcomer Laurent John and the hard bars of David Dallas himself, ‘Fit In’ sees the NZ trendsetter continue to stand out, shifting his sound and the goalposts.

The forthcoming album follows the critically acclaimed Falling Into Place – a record which saw David Dallas reach significant heights. David Dallas took home two Tuis at the 2014 NZ Music Awards for Best Male Artist and Best Rap Album for Falling Into Place. The first single ‘Runnin’ achieved Platinum status in New Zealand and has been viewed a whopping 3.8 million times on youtube. Following the release of the album, David Dallas supported Eminem on his first New Zealand show and toured with Run The Jewels across Australia and New Zealand.
