Beloved Detroit hip-hop icon Danny Brown announces his seventh studio album, Quaranta—set to release November 17, 2023 via Warp Records—with a head-knocking new single and video, “Tantor”, produced by The Alchemist.

“Tantor” is a display of Brown’s sonic mastery, with his punchy vocals cutting through a frenetically hardcore and industrial instrumental. The song further comes to life through its video, directed by *UNCANNY, where Brown blends humanity and technology as he gallivants across Los Angeles in a bionic costume. Mixing in animated clips and heavy editing into the hand-held music video, Brown becomes a fully realized “cyborg with vocal chords”, as he lyrically proclaims within the electrifying song. With the song’s penetrating sound and daring video, “Tantor” is a triumphant return to solo music for Brown.

A spiritual bookend to his breakout album XXX and meditative follow-up to this year’s critically heralded collaboration album SCARING THE HOES with JPEGMAFIA, Quaranta finds Brown as the most fully realized version of himself. The album features masterful and enrapturing production from some of his most trusted collaborators, including DJ and producer SKYWLKR, The Alchemist, Quelle Chris, Paul White and the Bruiser Brigade crew, and lyrical contributions from Bruiser Wolf and MIKE.

In November, Brown will host his 10th Bruiser Thanksgiving celebration. Bruiser Thanksgiving is an annual concert featuring a selection of Brown’s favorite performers and is a celebration of multidisciplinary musicians from different generations thoughtfully assembled in one space for the fans who love them. The festival highlights the city of Detroit and the Detroit community as a creative and cultural landmark. Past artists have included Lil B, Joey Badass, Sada Baby, Zach Fox, MIKE, Omar S, Valee, DJ Assault, HiTech, JohnFM, ZelooperZ, JLin and many more. At this year’s Bruiser Thanksgiving X, Danny Brown is planning an extra special reunion show with co-collaborator JPEGMAFIA themed around their collaboration project Scaring The Hoes. The live event takes place on November 22, 2023 at the Russell Industrial Complex in Detroit, Michigan.
