Recently, KRUM explained the recent name change, “I'm making some changes over here so I wanted to let you all know the latest. This will be the last e-mail that you get from Playdough. Don't worry, I'm still making music and going strong. From now on all of my music will be under the name ‘Krum’. I know that's a major change, but it's great news and I'm super excited about moving forward. I made a quick video to explain the reason for the change and what the future looks like for me.”
