The first taste of Machine Gun Kelly‘s new album Born with Horns is here. The rocker dropped his new single “Papercuts” overnight.

Simultaneous with the song’s release was the Cole Bennett-directed video, which starts off with MGK cruising down the road on a motorcycle with oversized horns protruding from the sides. 

In the video, Kelly is rocking a variety of hairstyles, from a Edward Scissorhands-esque style to a shaggy blonde look. He also sports the shaved head he debuted ahead of the track’s release before ripping off a bald cap, seemingly revealing his true hair underneath. 

The campy visuals take viewers on a ride as MGK sings about the constraints and expectations of fame.

“Bleach my hair, mess it up/Take my life, dress it up/Signed a deal, I got papercuts/ They wanted them, but they got us,” the lyrics read. 

“Papercuts” is the first single off Kelly’s upcoming Travis Barker-produced album, Born with Horns. A release date for the project has not been announced.
