The singer said that the recording was a humbling experience
Fireboy DML’s has released three tracks from his latest album Apollo. They include ‘Airplane Mode’, ‘Tattoo’ and ‘Champion’ – as well as a cover of Afropop singer Wande Coal’s ‘Again’. These songs are featured on Apple Music Home Session project.
The singer said that the recording of the stripped-down home session was a humbling experience for him… “because in some way it afforded me the chance to find my way back to that dreamy young man I was a couple of years back, I wanted to show a bit of vulnerability while still maintaining raw emotion, and I think I managed to do just that.”
He said he is convinced that the tracks he setlist on Apple Music Home Session are the most powerful and compelling songs off the album” and exposed “different parts of me that I initially never showed my fans.”
According to Fireboy, ‘Airplane Mode’ reveals his reclusive nature and how he deals with fame. ‘Tattoo’ shows his sensual and intense side, while ‘Champion’ is an inspirational song about a young man who won despite the odds against him.
Interestingly, he offers that nothing sums up his life better than the songs at the moment.
And I decided to perform an acoustic cover of ‘Again’ by Wande Coal because he is a man he considers to be his idol and this is a song he considers a modern classic.”
Fireboy DML is signed to YBNL Nation, a record label founded by Nigerian rapper Olamide.
