Tunde Olaniran is a queer musician and adept multi-hyphenate as a singer, songwriter, rapper, activist, producer, choreographer, author, and more. Based in Flint, Michigan, the busy bee is dropping his sophomore album, Stranger, this Friday, Oct. 5. Our Song of the Day, “Mountain,” sees Olaniran put out a message of encouragement via a force of a dance track.
“I was in the studio and my friend Seth Anderson said, ‘You can’t just stop halfway up the mountain! You either climb or fall’… I realized that creating music and art was worth some sleepless nights and uncertain times.” explained Tunde, “It’s meant to be a song you can move to, like really fucking sweat to. It’s that song you put on when you’re ready to just go into beast mode.”
Stranger follows Olaniran’s 2015 acclaimed debut Transgressor. Watch the video for "I'm Here" below.
