Los Angeles singer-songwriter Hanni El Khatib returned with a brand new song released last week and it’s a song with a twist. Titled ‘Gonna Die Alone,’ this track is driven by a chirpy melody and upbeat rhythm which serves as a nice contrast to the more troubled lyrics: “I’m gonna die alone, really alone. If the ones that hate me don’t kill me first, the ones that love me gonna harm me worse..”
While his recent collaborations with Freddie Gibbs (“Satin Black”) and GZA and Tom Morello (“The Mexican”) suggested he’d be going the way of hip-hop, his latest offering sees him returning to his roots and serving up a slice of fuzzy garage rock. Listen above.
‘Gonna Die Alone’ appears on Hanni El Khatib’s latest EP, Savage Times Vol. 1 which is out now and available to purchase from here
