Wiki shares new song “Cheat Code,” playing Mercury Lounge
Wiki still hasn't announced a followup to his excellent 2017 album No Mountains In Manhattan, but he's been rolling out singles and clearly has something up his sleeve. Following "In The Park" and "Elixir," he now dropped "Cheat Code," which finds Wiki sounding menacing as ever over a dark, hypnotic beat. And like much of No Mountains In Manhattan, it's partially an ode to the city that made him. "The song is sort of about the question of if there's a cheat code to life," Wiki says. "Ultimately there isn't. I talk about cheat codes specifically and drop some references, but I also talk about coming up and getting around in New York. It's a joint. It bangs. It's produced by my guy Tony Seltzer who's also from New York." It's great stuff, and it's making us more excited for more Wiki music, which is coming this year.
Wiki also announced a one-off hometown show for April 2 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets go on sale Friday (2/22) at noon.
