Mykki Blanco has shared a new song called “Loner”, the latest cut to be taken from his debut album Mykki, released on September 16.
While “High School Never Ends”, the album’s first single, was a tender and emotional piece of music, its follow-up “The Plug Won’t” showcased Blanco’s more amped-up, party-friendly tendencies. “Loner” is another left turn: it’s a dainty song featuring Chicago vocalist/songwriter Jean Deaux that tackles the more isolating aspects of life both online and off.
“‘Loner’ is a song about misunderstanding,” Blanco explains in a press release, “And more than misunderstanding, it’s a song about a universal feeling of not feeling worthy enough, not feeling good enough. We as a human race go through so much and yet rarely are able to share our pain, our compromises. People only know a party persona when it comes to Mykki Blanco, with this album and with this song I want them to know who I am on the inside.”
