Baker Boy continues delivers another silky-smooth, radio bound single in 'Butterflies' as he races towards his debut album launch.

Baker Boy will release his debut album, Gela, on October 15 but has dropped a taste of what’s to come today with rapid-paced new single ‘Butterflies’.

Packing his trademark bilingual bars, ‘Butterflies’ brings a percussion-heavy, dancefloor orientation that builds on what’s been working so well so far, rapid wordplay delivery and radio-friendly backing vocals.

Stay up to date with what’s happening in Melbourne here.

“’Butterflies’ is all about word play and bringing in different flavours and energy,” he says.

“It’s about chasing that feeling and being addicted to the adrenaline rush. You know, I wanted this track to kind of be adaptable so different people can feel it differently when they hear it. It could be about chasing love, chasing that adrenaline rush, chasing fame, chasing that feeling of being on stage. It could be about anything.”

‘Butterflies’ is the sixth track released off Baker Boy’s joyful full length LP Gela, which out in less than a month’s time. Gela will include singles ‘Cool As Hell’, ‘Meditjin feat. JessB’, ‘Move’, ‘Ride feat. Yirrmal’ and ‘My Mind feat. G Flip’.
