Next month, the London R&B singer Leo Kalyan will release his Outside In EP, a record full of slick and beautiful melodies but also intense real talk about what it’s like to grow up queer and Muslim. We’ve already posted his song “Silhouette,” and now he’s also shared “Fucked Up,” a devastating track about being lost in the world. Musically, it draws on devotional music and Sade in equal measures. Listen to it below.
Outside In is out 10/28 on my friend Nick Sylvester’s Godmode label.
