Los Angeles-based emerging artist, Tanna Leone has released his new single “Picasso” via pgLang/Def Jam Recordings. The track is the first song to be taken from Tanna’s debut project, SLEEPY SOLDIER, out April 28th. Listen to it now below.
Said Tanna on the genesis of “Picasso”, “I was in a darker, angrier place in my life and I needed to send a message to everyone listening. Being tired of where I was; I needed to express my frustrations while speaking my truth.”
SLEEPY SOLDIER, Tanna said, “represents a person at war with themself and the world. Even when they’re tired, they have to keep going because they know their purpose is bigger in the battle.
“I rerecorded this project over the last year and it touches on everything from mistakes, love, wins, highs and lows in different forms.
“Everything I’m talking about is a reflection of recent life moments and a small amount of past experiences but I’m ultimately expressing my human experience. When it’s all said and done, we experience the same emotions, and similar experiences that make us one, and that’s the mold I wanted to create on this project. This is human music.”
