Boston emcee/actor Slaine is back with a new visual for the heartfelt, reflective song “When the War Ends” of his new LP. The track is bolstered by a moody, cinematic backdrop and Slaine’s punchy vocals and vivid lyrics about the pain of surviving the craziness of the world. NY rap veteran Ill Bill joins the fray with his impassioned chorus to tie things up.
“When the War Ends” is the final single off Slaine’s new LP The Things We Can’t Forgive. It’s a lyrically-charged journey that touches on love, sex, heartbreak, narcissism, trauma, betrayal, addiction, forgiveness, and recovery. The ten-track LP is produced primarily by his frequent collaborator and fellow Bostonian, The Arcitype, who helps build a foundation of rich instrumentation. Additional production is provided by Statik Selektah who created the album’s title track.
To accompany the album Slaine shares his self-directed video for “When the War Ends (feat. ILL BILL),” which includes photography and editing by Christian Hardy. The cinematic visuals center on a troubled, younger version of Slaine (Justin Thoms), who ultimately confronts his future self with potentially stirring results.
