Richmond-to-LA rapper, producer, and songwriter Peter $untoday announced his next EP, 3PIECE is set to arrive August 15 via Red Bull Records/Mind of a Genius. Leading with the new single, “My Favorite Drug,” the track sets the tone for summer with its groovy house-inspired beat and Sunny’s signature laid-back flow. It’s a vibe shift from his previous EP, Phone Calls Gimme Anxiety, which saw him process his brother’s passing in a deeply personal and introspective musical journey. Sunny is back and just wants people to let loose. That couldn’t be more clear in the accompanying video where we find him in a desert-fueled fever dream complete with a dance sequence and an off-road car chase.
Sunny shares, “I feel like coming out of Covid and all the losses we’ve had the past couple years, my music was reflecting that during the time of my EP, ‘Phone Calls Gimme Anxiety’. With the new music, I really wanted to make people feel good and dance. It’s got that funk/house bounce to it. This one is for the house parties, the cook outs, and all that.”
3PIECE will mark Sunny’s first body of work in 2023, following a busy year of live performances and forthcoming projects. In April he played to a packed crowd at LA’s famed Roxy alongside YGTUT, and in May he took to Anderson .Paak’s beloved .Paak House event in Ventura. Later this summer, his episode of the popular YouTube series “On Site” will air from the creators at Spring Hill Company, the entertainment development and production company founded by LeBron James and Maverick Carter. The video will debut a special live version of his new song, “Burn Like Fire.” Beyond music, Sunny continues to lean into his passion for painting with his talents on display in the artwork for 3PIECE and more to come.
