Learning In Public is the Zimbabwe born artist’s 3rd ep and his first since 2021’s NAVIG8.

Hull UK-based musician Chiko Chinyadza (Downtown Kayoto) has announced his first multi-track project in 2 years. Set for release on June 15 via Other Projects (NiNE8, KhakiKid), the EP announcement coincides with the release of his new single ‘Changed It.’ Produced by Jack Laboz (María Isabel, Alice Longyu Gao) the EP will consist of 6 tracks and features recently released singles ‘In2you‘ and ‘Run from you.'”

On the track’s lyrical inspiration, Downtown Kayoto explained:

“I made this in a time in which I got into a big fight/argument with my ex. At the time I made it, I thought I was at my worst and things couldn’t get any worse, but boy was I wrong. What shortly followed was my worst. I got scared for a long time because it was like the things I wrote foreshadowed the future, so for a long time I was scared to talk ill of myself in my music. I was only experiencing the “I’m still a mess” bit of the song but I clung onto the “unless I change it” part for hope. It was me choosing to use commas instead of full stops, I am a mess, I’m all over the place, and up until now I’m piecing things together but I will be okay, we all will be… I truly believe this in my core.”

Downtown Kayoto’s new EP Learning In Public is out June 15th via Other Projects. His new single ‘Changed It’ is out now.
