Today, breakout singer, songwriter, and producer Sub Urban returns with new single “CANDYMAN,” a dynamic alt-pop anthem with a dark twist. Listen HERE via Warner Records. The fourth pre-release single from the 22-year-old’s forthcoming HIVE album (due June 3) explores consumerism and greed. Pre-save Sub Urban’s hotly-anticipated debut LP HERE

The inventive production style maintains its unique duality. “CANDYMAN” begins with bells and whistles before shifting into a shadowy, vaudevillian tone. Regarding the inspiration behind the track, Sub Urban shared, “CANDYMAN is a hysterical sugarcoated anthem describing a capitalistic dogging rage within us all and the torment we subject ourselves to by being born.

“CANDYMAN” follows April’s hypnotic “UH OH” featuring BENEE. The accompanying music video, which has amassed more than 14 million views so far, emphasizes Sub Urban’s multi-disciplined artistry including a penchant for acting. It’s the kind of striking vision that makes each and every new video an event.  

Sub Urban’s HIVE era officially began in 2021 with “INFERNO” featuring frequent collaborator Bella Poarch, and the AURORA-assisted “PARAMOUR.” When you factor in “UH OH,” songs from the album have netted more than 300 million global streams. With more than 5 million YouTube subscribers and 3.9 million TikTok followers, Sub Urban has leveraged social media success into alt-pop stardom as evidenced by co-signs by Alt Press, Billboard, PAPER, FLAUNT, Genius, MTV, Variety and more. 

On Sunday, Sub Urban kicks off The Gods We Can Touch North American Tour with AURORA.
