Seattle singer/songwriter Jairemie Alexander unknowingly made his DopeHouse debut back in 2012 when he starred in Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ socially impactful “Same Love” video.
Today, he makes a formal return with his own individual piece of work: Kings & Queens.
The EP lasts four songs, and Alexander explained the inspiration behind each one in a press release.
- “High” — speaks to humanity’s greed and lust and the overcoming of these conditions, which, in a euphoric transformation enables us to become real, true and worthwhile.
- “Clouds” — speaks of overcoming, new discoveries and the beauty of beginning anew.
- “Battleground” — is where action, movement and new found awareness struggles to rise above dark forces. It is the place where new meaning takes shape.
- “Kings & Queens” — is triumphant, we emerge victorious, self aware and fulfilled.
Shake sent this to me a couple days ago, and it officially dropped the Friday before last — so we’re a couple days late. Stream the project below, and download Kings & Queens on iTunes.
