Daniel Wilson's new song "Sinner Of The Week" comes at a moment when various strains of house music are dominating pop. Fortunately, by sheer strength of songcraft, the tune emerges from the crowd headfirst, nodding to an ecstatic composition recalling the ornateness of Michael Jackson's Off The Wall. Daniel's Sinner Of The Week EP is out this Friday.
The message of the song, explained to The FADER over email, could turn it into an unofficial anthem for Pride Month: "The song is about freedom and living in your truth, even when it's all too much and the pain doesn't seem worth it anymore. Learning to love yourself. Finding people who will love and accept you fully, without condescension.”
