Singer/songwriter/producer Quinn XCII has unveiled his latest genre-bending track “Sad Still” today via Columbia Records.
Quinn XCII explains: “This song is really meaningful to me because I think topically it highlights a lot of important things – from mental health, anxiety, social media, and a lot of my frustrations with society today. For so long people have been avoiding the subject of mental health and I think recently musicians have done a great job using their platforms to speak on the topic. We all struggle with it in some form or another, and I think it’s important that we stop hiding behind the pressures of the stigmas and society’s expectations and ‘standards.’
I wrote the song with my friends Scott Harris and Kinetics and One Love, who were really able to take me out of my comfort zone in the best way sonically. This is the first song I’ve rapped on in a really long time, and it’s combined with this melodic, happy-sounding chorus that incorporates a deep, important message. I think that aspect perfectly represents the message of the song – it’s basically a sad song that is polished up and pretending to be happy on the surface.”
Quinn XCII also recently shared “Werewolf” ft. Yoshi Flower, which marked his first release since his debut album The Story of Us last year. Watch the video for “Werewolf” HERE.
The rising artist has accumulated an impressive 300 Million streams on Spotify alone from his vast catalog, and 20 Million combined views on YouTube.
