3pm August 30th, 2019 - Duckwrth releases his new single and video "Crush" today. The first new music since the release of his acclaimed project, THE FALLING MAN, "Crush" is an "insert descriptive quote" (Billboard). Directed by Grizz Lee and Mancy Gant, the video captures chance encounters that turn into impromptu dance-offs as Duckwrth crushes on girls he meets around his neighborhood. Watch the video for "Crush" below.

Over the summer months, Duckwrth maintained a relentless schedule that was packed with studio sessions and included international performances at Openair in Switzerland, Malmo in Sweden and Melt Festival in Germany. Ahead of joining Billie Eilish on her When We All Fall Asleep stadium tour this October, Duckwrth will headline a performance at the Jazz Cafe in London on September 26th. Upcoming dates also include Afropunk Festival in Atlanta, Georgia on October 12th and Austin City Limits in Austin, Texas on October 13th. In November, Duckwrth will join DJ Duo, Louis The Child, on their Here For Now Tour. Tickets and more info at https://www.duckwrth.com

Following the breakout success of his last project, THE FALLING MAN, which was named by NPR as one of the best album releases in May, Duckwrth has found his creative sweetspot. "For a project so concerned with the idea of falling, failing, and losing one's way, Duckwrth has managed to do the opposite," Highsnobiety said. "He's never sounded so in touch with himself or filled with purpose."

Known for being a multi-talented artist who has a hand in all facets of his creative output, Duckwrth creative directed an accompanying experiential short film for THE FALLING MAN which exemplified how he's "never afraid to fully express himself through his crafts" (Hypebeast). In addition to the success of his latest project, recent accolades include garnering over 33 million streams on Spotify for his Spider-Man single, "Start A Riot," performing for Quincy Jones and Steve Mcqueen's "Sounds of America" series, partnering with brands like Fila, Paul Smith, Creed, Diesel and Heineken, and collaborating with Palms Casino for their "UNSTATUS QUO" campaign which also featured Cardi B, Rita Ora, Ozuna, Marshmello, Dapper Dan and more.
