Hannah (The Sun)
by Fred again..
(1 play) | (0 fans)

Fred again.. on this track release last year: "This song is like a sort of reset button in the middle of this album. That’s kinda what the sun always represents an opportunity for, to me. There’s a beautiful bill murray interview where he ends saying ‘so I realised that I was just a person, and I get another shot at it, every day the sun comes up’."

Dancing On My Own
by Robyn
(66 plays) | (0 fans)

"In lesser hands, it might be confusing. When Robyn does it, it's human. Contrary emotions wrapped up in one package, happiness and sadness living together in a groove: Everything about this song is a juxtaposition. That's what makes it an anthem." NPR featured this breakup song as an American Anthem: https://www.npr.org/2019/06/10/730641583/robyn-dancing-on-my-own-alone-together-american-anthem

Bobby Womack knew nothing about Gorillaz and was initially unsure about the collaboration; however, his granddaughter liked Gorillaz and convinced him to do it. Womack was told to sing whatever was on his mind during the recording of "Stylo". "I was in there for an hour going crazy about love and politics, getting it off my chest", said Womack

During a 2011 interview, Monáe said that she "only dates androids", a reference to her musical alter-ego found in many of her songs. She also said, "I speak about androids because I think the android represents the new 'other'. You can compare it to being a lesbian or being a gay man or being a black woman... what I want is for people who feel oppressed or feel like the 'other' to connect with the music and to feel like, 'She represents who I am.'" https://bit.ly/3luq9bJ In January, Monae tweeted the hashtag #IAmNonbinary, made "in support of Non-binary Day and to bring more awareness to the community."
