Quelle Chris gets real on the bluesy slow-jam “Alive Ain’t Always Living”, announces new album

Detroit hero Quelle Chris has announced he’ll be putting out a new album called Deathfame on May 13 through Mello Music Group. It boasts features from Navy Blue, Pink Siifu, and many more, but for the first single “Alive Ain’t Always Living” he’s all on his own.

And “Alive Is Always Living” is the kind of song where Chris needs to be by himself, as it finds him getting some personal feelings off his chest. Producer Chris Keys provides a dusty, slow-moving beat with some bluesy keys, creating a warm atmosphere where the rapper can let the act drop and just tell it like it is. Quelle Chris rakes over the coals of previous bouts of depression and bad behaviour, not hiding from them. Looking through these actions just makes him feel even more grateful that he has people who’ve helped him come through it, who’ve ensured he stays alive and on the right path towards a happy life – and he’s sharing that feeling far and wide with “Alive Ain’t Always Leaving”, passing forward the positivity.

Quelle Chris’ new album Deathfame comes out on May 13 through Mello Music Group (pre-order/save). You can find him on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
