Free Download: Colin Munroe "Piano Lessons"

Colin Munroe, one of my newest favorites, returns with another brand-new track from his fantastic digital mixtape "Colin Munroe Is The Unsung Hero." In a time when iPod playlists randomly shuffle through limitless genres, the Canadian singer is spearheading a whole new generation of artists that doesn't think in terms of conventional musical stereotypes and genres. Instead, he takes his inspiration from lots of different places to create a unique, innovative brew of his own.

"They say you failed at life if you failed at piano lessons. And I said so be it and I walked out the door," he sings on "Piano Lessons," indicating that sometimes the best way is your own way regardless of people's expectations.

I met up with Colin this past weekend at Dallas Austin's studio in Atlanta where he is putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming debut LP "Don't Think Less Of Me." We spoke at length about his musical experimentation and inspirations. (Look out for this exclusive video interview very soon.)

This autobiographic new track, "Piano Lessons," is just a perfect example of Monroe's unique style of music-making. Featuring Brooklyn MC Joell Ortiz and produced by Black Milk, the song neatly flows pop, hip hop and R&B into one compelling tune that I find so incredibly fresh and catchy. The accompanying video is a visually arresting piece that perfectly fits the song's sweet & crunchy qualities.

Get "Piano Lessons" (plus a fun acapella and instrumental version) as totally-guilt free MP3 download.
