Solomun delivers highly anticipated new album, ‘Nobody Is Not Loved’ via his own imprint, NINL
Written by Rhythm 86 on May 30, 2021
Hitting streaming services nearly 12 years after his debut LP, Dance Baby, Solomun’s sophomore album is finally here, wearing its message right on its sleeve—Nobody Is Not Loved. Hinging the album’s core purpose on music’s inherent ability to connect people, the 12-track LP captures a deep and thought-provoking essence for listeners. Elucidating the album’s inspiration, Solomun shared, “The album title ‘Nobody Is Not Loved’ speaks to the idea that music loves everyone.”
Beginning with “Ocean,” an unexpected yet enthralling collaboration with Jamie Foxx, the album lifts off with a soft and dynamic melody surrounding Foxx’s velvet vocal styling. Driving forward with energy and spirit, Solomun weaves through subtle yet intricate works like “The Center Will Not Fold” and the ÄTNA-assisted collaboration “Tuk Tuk.” “Never Sleep Again” marks the album’s turning point, placing a divide between vibrant outputs into more fluid and somber excursions. Closing out the long-awaited album with an orchestral accompaniment to Tom Smith’s solemn and robotic vocals on “Night Travels.” Over the album’s 12-track duration, it is abundantly clear that good things come to those who wait, and for those that held on for Solomun’s sophomore outing, the final product proved to be one well worth the wait.
