Hoodie Allen (AKA Steven Markowitz) has released his latest single “Hell Of A Time.” The track followed on the heels of his previous release “Come Around (ft. Christian French)” and is his second single from his forthcoming album Whatever, USA, due out August 16.

“This a song that sounds happy, but when you listen to the lyrics, it’s very evident that it’s not a happy topic. I love to flip meanings on their head,” says Hoodie Allen. “So it made sense to play with phrases like ‘hell of a time’ and ‘been a minute’ within the scope of this story about times that were kind of like hell.”

Whatever, USA is a tribute to small towns and was inspired by Hoodie Allen’s touring which allowed him to visit small towns across the world. He will be hitting the road for Phase One of the Whatever, USA tour later this year. Kicking off on September 19th in Columbus, Oh, he will be joined on tour by Jake Miller.
