After releasing previous smash hits including “Shadows Crawl” & “1st,” singer/songwriter Torii Wolf returns with Macklemore-assisted track “Free,” the lead single from her forthcoming debut album, FLOW RiiOT.
“Free” is a special tune. It’s very relatable. True freedom comes from within; it’s the battle we face each day with our own identity. Having the confidence to be comfortable in our skin and with who we are; and being our true authentic selves. I find the content of someone else’s mind most attractive. Feeling free in my gender fluidity and the way I connect with other humans is vital to my being. To feel safe in outwardly expressing what it is that ignites a spark in me can be very challenging in the society we live in. However, it’s only harder when I try and resist it. It feels very important for me to lead by example in sharing with others how we are in control of our own destiny.” Torii told Complex.
Producer DJ Premier describes how the track came about to Complex –“When we had our first meeting to compile which songs were going to make the album, King Of Chill plays this track that I hadn’t heard” DJ Premier stated to Complex. “It was only a beat and Torii was singing a line from The Police’s “Voices Inside My Head.” I asked both of them; why have I never heard this? It needed lyrics, but we removed the hook because I wanted to scratch on it. Torii came back to the studio, wrote and recorded her vocals and she decided to call it “Free.”
