With just over a month before the release of his debut album The Story Of Us, Quinn XCII has released a new track, “Worst.” While Quinn XCII’s music could be described as indie pop, it takes influence from and seamlessly merges a variety of genre influences. “Worst” opens to a funky guitar riff before blending into a hip-hop-infused vocal. The chorus features electronic beats, and lines like “You’re the worst / But it’s the best that we’re the worst for each other” will soon be stuck in your head.

If you’re looking for some new tunes to kick off your week, this could hit just the right spot. Despite it’s negative title, “Worst” is ultimately a positive song about two lovers who may have gripes with each other but ultimately decide “all our baggage and all our damage” is what makes their relationship special. The song comes as the followup to “Fake Denim” and “Straightjacket,” the latter of which has already received over 12 million plays on Spotify.

Quinn XCII began making huge waves online with his 2015 EP Change of Scenery and the 2016 EP Bloom, and on September 15, he’ll be releasing The Story Of Us on Columbia Records. To celebrate the album’s release, the Detroit-bred artist will hit the road for his first headlining tour this fall. The tour will include two shows in Michigan–October 3 at Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, and October 4 at Magic Bag in Ferndale. A complete list of shows can be seen below.
