Michigan rapper NF has revealed the title of his forthcoming album while giving fans an idea of what they can expect with the debut of the album’s title track, “The Search.”
Grab your Emo Nite balloons and brace yourselves as you spend 4 minutes and 11 seconds in the dark corners of NF’s mind as he maps out the ambitious quest ahead.
The track comes in at 777 words, giving fans a lot to unpack along with an incredible video co-directed by NF and Patrick Tohill.
The music video acts almost like a short movie, showing NF carrying around black balloons in a world that he’s attempting to find his way through.
You can check out the official video for “The Search” below.
The Search will mark NF’s fourth full-length album and a followup to the independently released, Perception.
NF also announced The Search tour which will launch this fall. The 29-date run will kick off Sept. 12 in Pittsburgh and finish up with his debut at Red Rocks Oct. 13.
Fan ticket presale begins Tuesday, June 4 at 10 a.m. local time, with tickets going on sale to the public on Friday, June 7 at 10 a.m. local time.
Every online order of two or more tickets will include one physical copy of NF’s new album. Ticket information and presale registration can be found here.
