Anjimile has just signed to 4AD, and has shared his debut release for the label, the single “Stranger.” Listen below.

Anjimile elaborates on the new song in a press release, stating: “‘Stranger’ is something of a confrontation between my past and present selves in relationship to my trans identity. I started testosterone about 3 or 4 years ago, and it’s been simultaneously liberating and alarming to note the changes to my mind and body over the years. ‘Stranger’ is an admission to myself that, while I welcome all of those changes—especially the deepening effect of testosterone on my singing and speaking voice—it’s still scary and there is a degree of internal ambivalence to my transition. In transitioning I lost, or gave up, a part of myself. And that is hard to reconcile. ‘Stranger’ is an attempt at some semblance of reconciliation, I guess.”

Giver Taker, Anjimile’s debut album, came out last year via Father/Daughter. Read our interview with Anjimile on the album, and check out our podcast interview with him, where he discusses his most recent project, the Reunion EP.
