Anjimile Signs to 4AD, Shares New Song “Stranger”

Anjimile has signed to 4AD. His first new single for the label, “Stranger,” is out today. Give it a listen below.

“‘Stranger’ is something of a confrontation between my past and present selves in relationship to my trans identity,” Anjimile said in a statement. “I started testosterone about 3 or 4 years ago, and It’s been simultaneously liberating and alarming to note the changes to my mind and body over the years. ‘Stranger’ is an admission to myself that, while I welcome all of those changes—especially the deepening effect of testosterone on my singing and speaking voice—it’s still scary and there is a degree of internal ambivalence to my transition. In transitioning I lost, or gave up, a part of myself. And that is hard to reconcile. ‘Stranger’ is an attempt at some semblance of reconciliation, I guess.”

Animile, raised in Dallas and now based in North Carolina, released his debut album Giver Taker last year via Father/Daughter.
