HUNTER: NEW FULL LENGTH PROJECT

POSTED BY Baiyu IN Original Music @ June 12, 2012 - 9:00 pm

Hunting may be a sport for some, but it is a way of life for others.  With her third release entitled Hunter, Pop/R&B artist Baiyu takes her audience through a journey of sound in an exploration of any and all things fundamental to the cravings of human nature. Baiyu explains, “I feel like we’re all Hunters in our own right, whether we’re looking for glory or acceptance; love or revenge; or even just the simple things in life that put a smile on our faces—it is a quest for something that is in a way almost primal and innate to our individual characters.”

Hunter‘s tracklist is comprised of thirteen tunes whose tone ranges from Electro-Pop to R&B to haunting Indie-esque melodies all blanketed with Baiyu’s deep rooted soulful musicality—each touching upon something that Baiyu herself is hunting for. It features a range of artist with whom Baiyu has collaborated with including Los of the Bad Boy family, Rotimi of the series Boss on the STARZ Network, Barbadian born Soul/R&B singer Hal Linton, as well as former American Idol contestant Paul Kim. The majority of the album is produced by KQuick of Grand Staff LLC who’s known for his work in collaboration with Ryan Leslie, Chris Brown, Fabolous, and Mya; as well as contributing production from Vaughn-J and Hal Linton.

 

In the coming days, the Hunter project will grow beyond its musical component and extend into a book of poetry, as well as the release of Baiyu’s comic book series and animated short titled The Illuminators. Starting June 13th, the album will be available as a free download via DatPiff at http://www.datpiff.com/Baiyu-Hunter-mixtape.361651.html, as well as via music.baiyuonline.com; and will also be on iTunes.

THE SPIRIT OF THE HUNTER

 

I am the hunter
Who is the hunted
Hailing from the future
And haunted by the past
I hunt

I hunt for truth
Not in the physical
But all things inverted
I hunt for the non tangible
In a tangible world

I hunt for answers
In a place of lies
Veiled truths
In a land of misconception
And naïveté

I hunt for freedom
Born of shackles
The breaking free
Makes the struggle
A relief

I hunt for love
In the things that I hate
In the irritants
And in the irate

In the hunt for it all
I am belittled and ravaged
But my hunt is my path
And my destiny is hunting
So I am born
