Joy Oladokun Shares Resilient ‘We’re All Gonna Die’ Single Featuring Noah Kahan
Listen to the second single of Oladukan’s upcoming album Proof Of Life.
Oladokun is set to release Proof Of Life on April 28 through Amigo Records/Verve Forecast/Republic Records. The 13-track LP features the previously shared single, “Changes.” In addition to Kahan, other guests recruited by Oladokun for Proof Of Life include , Manchester Orchestra, Maxo Kream and Mt. Joy.
“This album is evidence of how I live,” Oladokun stated. “I hope these are helpful anthems. I started making music because I wasn’t hearing from the ‘everyday human being’ on the radio. I hope this resonates with anybody who feels normal and needs a little musical boost to get through the day. I’m average. I do this job because I love what I do. I put so much care, craft, and intention into it. I’m making music to live to.”
Oladokun’s upcoming touring schedule will see her supporting John Mayer, The Teskey Brothers and Kahan on their respective tours. Oladokun will also appear at the Love Rising LGBTQ+ benefit concert in Nashville on March 20 and perform at festivals such as Boston Calling, Hinterland, Outside Lands and others.
Regarding “We’re All Gonna Die,” which was recorded with a string section, Oladokun stated:
“When my friends and I started ‘We’re All Gonna Die’ we were most shocked at how nihilistically joyful it is. Death is a dark and difficult subject for most people, including myself. This song is about facing the fear head-on and acknowledging that we’re all guessing what the best way to live is. I love that it highlights a sense of humor that both Noah and I have that people may not always pick up on in our music.”
