ALEC KING RELEASES DEBUT ALBUM EVERYTHING’S BACKWARDS TODAY
FEATURING GUESTS GNASH, SKIZZY MARS & MORE
After a year of wild bangers and insane videos filled with cameos by cartoons, puppies and adult film starlets, Los Angeles-based artist Alec King releases his anxiously awaited full-length debut album EVERYTHING’S BACKWARDS via The Heavy Group/Republic Records.

He initially teased the record with “Fuck Wow Holy Shit” and its unbelievable accompanying music video. However, the 15-track opus proves why he’s the most interesting man in rap. He oozes Denver pride and locks bars with Skizzy Mars on “303-905-5535,” and he also knows how to lull you into a singalong with his new single “Numb & Nervous” feat. gnash.
Between the confessions of “Innocent In A Sense” and plea to “Plz Stop Stalkin Me,” he even gets way more intimate than expected during the ironically titled finale “The Intro.”
The album follows the releases of “Weekends,” “Way Up” and “Dangerous,” which received heavy radio support in his hometown of Denver and over 2 million streams in a few months. At the end of last year, Alec King went on his debut US tour with diva on the rise, KianaLedé. He performed to sold out venues, including Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Washington DC and more, winning the crowd over with his infectious charm, incredible stage presence and catchy songs.
Is there any line this guy won’t cross? Alec King is the kind of dude who rips bars about Wisconsin and god-awful ex-girlfriends with the same passion. He considers Curb Your Enthusiasm his “Torah.” He jumps into bathtubs with Porn Stars in music videos that he directs himself. He even went so far as to name his official debut EP, Greatest Hits, Vol. 1, and its successor, Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 (he backed up the latter with some heat). On the ‘gram, you’re just as likely to catch him in the shower as you are to catch him coloring with sidewalk chalk. This sort of personality endeared him to both fans and peers alike. Posting up 10 million-plus streams under-the-radar and attracting acclaim from Dancing Astronaut, he has collaborated with legends such as Biz Markie and modern stars a la Rich The Kid and Kiana Ledé. Not to mention, he did all of this D.I.Y. primarily relying on an in-house team. In 2020, he floods the game with a series of singles and more surprises.
