Tanna Leone, the Los Angeles-based emerging artist signed to pgLang – the multi-disciplinary creative company co-founded by Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free – drops his new single “Picasso,” available at all DSPs today.  “Picasso” is the first track from Tanna’s debut project, SLEEPY SOLDIER, arriving April 28th via pgLang/Def Jam Recordings.

Hypebeast recently named Tanna to it’s New Gen: Spring 2022 list of new artists to discover this season, proclaiming: “Tanna’s growing repertoire is quiet proof of faith in the next generation by one of hip-hop’s greatest legends. And with that, fans can’t wait to see what’s in store.”

Said Tanna on the genesis of “Picasso”“I was in a darker, angrier place in my life and I needed to send a message to everyone listening.  Being tired of where I was; I needed to express my frustrations while speaking my truth.”

“Picasso” follows up Tanna’s two non-album debut tracks, “With The Villains” and “Lucky,” along with the official music video for “With The Villains.”  The video, directed by Neal Farmer, is a film noir which moves from block chase, to VR strip show, to tattoo parlor.

SLEEPY SOLDIER, Tanna says, “represents a person at war with themself and the world. Even when they’re tired, they have to keep going because they know their purpose is bigger in the battle.

“I rerecorded this project over the last year and it touches on everything from mistakes, love, wins, highs and lows in different forms. 

“Everything I’m talking about is a reflection of recent life moments and a small amount of past experiences but I’m ultimately expressing my human experience. When it’s all said and done, we experience the same emotions, and similar experiences that make us one, and that’s the mold I wanted to create on this project. This is human music.” 

“We’re excited to welcome Tanna Leone and pgLang to the Def Jam family as valued partners,” said Tunji Balogun, chairman and CEO, Def Jam Recordings, when the signing was first announced last month.  “I’m lucky to have been able to connect with Kendrick and Dave during the early stages of my career as friends and collaborators, and I’m thrilled to be able to extend that relationship here at Def Jam. Tanna is a dynamic and multi-talented new voice and we’re honored to be a part of his development and success.”

Tanna is a rare opportunity to disrupt. We’re excited to partner with my young n*gga,” said Dave Free.  pgLang is a multi-lingual company, communicating this generation’s creative language through mediums exemplifying the shared experiences that connect us all.
