Machine Gun Kelly is back! The rapper, singer and actor has dropped his new single papercuts, the first taste of his forthcoming sixth studio album, born with horns. The record continues the musicians collaborative efforts with Travis Barker, with the Blink-182 drummer serving as the albums executive producer.


Directed by Cole Bennett, the songs visual opens with back and white footage of the musician riding down Sunset Boulevard, sporting a complete new look. Bald and tattoo-less, the avant-garde visual solidifies Machine Gun Kelly's rock star status, whilst the track conceptually acknowledges the struggles that arrive alongside fame.



The rapper and Barker took to social media earlier this week to announce the record, sporting matching tattoos of the albums title, born with horns.



The multi-platinum recording artist has had a massive run of late, with his 2020 Platinum album Tickets To My Downfall 2020 Platinum album Tickets To My Downfall debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200, going on to bring home a slew of awards, including an MTV VMA, Billboard Awards for “Best Rock Album” and “Best Rock Artist” and an iHeart Radio Award.
