Machine Gun Kelly will be making a return to rap for his next album.

In a recent interview with Audacy, the self-proclaimed “music archaeologist” revealed that the project will be for himself. “For no other reason, no point to prove, no chip on my shoulder,” he said, adding that he wants fans to “miss” his pop-punk sound on 2020’s Tickets to My Downfall and 2022’s Mainstream Sellout. “If I keep doing things to prove things to people, I’m going to one, drive myself crazy and two, not make a good product,” he explained. “I made Tickets and Mainstream Sellout because I wanted to make them. I need to now also make people miss that sound.”

He added, “I’m going to do this tour and I’m gonna step into where I left Hotel Diablo and expand on my storytelling as a rapper and find a new innovative sound for the Hip Hop Machine Gun Kelly. That’s where my excitement is and where me as a music archaeologist wants to explore.”

Elsewhere in music, Dave, Future and Wizkid are set to headline the first ever Rolling Loud Toronto.
