Buzzing Los Angeles-based artist, Tanna Leone has released his debut album Sleepy Soldier today via pgLang / Def Jam Recordings. Tanna recently wrapped up his six-week stint as special guest on pgLang artist Baby Keem’s “The Melodic Blue Tour” of the U.S.
Sleepy Soldier explores a broad canvas of styles, colors and moods, anchored by Tanna’s innate sense of melody, introspective lyrics, and unique creative sensibilities. The album arrives two weeks after the single “Picasso,” which was the follow-up to two non-album debut tracks, “With The Villains” and “Lucky,” along with the official music video for “With The Villains.”
“I was in a darker, angrier place in my life and I needed to send a message to everyone listening,” Tanna said of the track. “Being tired of where I was; I needed to express my frustrations while speaking my truth.”
