DillanPonders drops his new “Because We’re Alive” album.
The highly-anticipated, full-length album from prolific and celebrated Toronto rapper DillanPonders drops today — Becuase We’re Alive is a 12-track project that boasts a long list of eclectic and exciting artist features and producer collaborations — including Ruby Waters, Allan Rayman, Witch Prophet, lemin., Bijan Amir, Dom Dias, Losh, Bad Child, and more. Written and recorded in Toronto, the albumâ€™s final song choices were selected from over 100 tracks Dillan wrote, recorded, and mixed while putting this project together.
“Because We’re Alive” features music that showcases Dillanâ€™s true evolution in sound — hip hop, pop, R&B, reggae, and country nods and inspiration are all found on this project, and illustrate Dillanâ€™s trajectory and growth as an artist, especially over the last two years. After overcoming recent experiences with homelessness and drug addiction, all while struggling with mental health issues and Bipolar disorder, Dillanâ€™s focus and priorities have changed drastically, and his view on life has become crystal clear.
“People tend to avoid the fact that life is fickle and could end at any minute, while I tend to relish in this inevitability,â€ says DillanPonders. â€I believe that for whatever reason, weâ€™re here now — and we should make the most of it, which is the main perspective of BECAUSE WEâ€™RE ALIVE, and something that I hope resonates with people across the globe, especially now.”
