After a few years of dropping EPs and singles, City Fidelia is finally ready to deliver his first album.
Fidelia’s upcoming album Painkiller is meant to be a self-imposed therapy. He explores his inner child and expresses the different ways he or his friends numbed the pain with topics related to growing up in a broken home, depression, love lost, but also a spiritual experience.
With this LP, City Fidelia shares his story by using his notepad and production skills to capture the attention of anybody that needs to hear that we are all in this together. Painkiller collaborations include Lord Quest and the cold capital’s finest artists.
