It’s been less than a year since Lucky Daye dropped his EP Table For Two, featuring Ari Lennox, Tiana Major9, Yebba, and more, but it looks like he’ll be making a return very soon. The singer announced his sophomore album Candy Drip will arrive at the top of 2022, and he also released its title track. “Candy Drip” is a woozy effort that sees Daye declaring his love for a special woman in his life. He also spoke about the album on Twitter. “Two years ago I released my first studio album for me,” he wrote. “It was an important turning point in my life. I can never thank you enough but I’m ready for something new. You ready?”
Two years ago I released my first studio album for me. It was an important turning point in my life. I can never thank you enough but I’m ready for something new. You ready?

It’s been a while since Daye released a full album, namely his 2019 Grammy-nominated debut Painted. In addition to Table For Two, Daye also delivered a number of guest features in 2021 with artists like Nao, BJ The Chicago Kid, Khalid, VanJess, and more.
Daye also announced a 2022 North American tour in support of the forthcoming album. He’ll hit the road starting on March 18 in Portland, Oregon, and perform at a string of shows that continues for a little over a month before things come to an end in New York City on April 25.
