Dalai Lama Releases First Single From Forthcoming Debut Album

It’s no secret that music is one of the great unifying forces of the world. Now, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is preparing to release a new album that mixes traditional Tibetan Buddhist mantras and chants with newly composed music. The album, Inner World, is set for release on July 6th to coincide with his 85th birthday.

The first single from the album is out now, called “Compassion.” It’s apparently based on one of the most famous Buddhist prayers, chanted by the Dalai Lama himself. It has a deep, musical backbone with a sort of dreamy melody and gentle instrumentation.

Inner World has been the idea of New Zealand musicians Junelle and Abraham Kunin since 2015, when they were finally able to successfully pitch the idea to one of the Dalai Lama’s assistants. Junelle wanted something to pair his teachings with music as a stress relief, but came up empty, and so chose to take the idea to the source himself.

Recalling her recording session with the Dalai Lama, Kunin said, “I’d never heard him speak like this. He really was so excited … he actually proceeded to explain to me how important music is. He leaned forward and his eyes were sparkling, and his fingers were rubbing together and he [talked] about how music can help people in a way that he can’t; it can transcend differences and return us to our true nature and our good heartedness.”

According to Rolling Stone, “Inner World will also feature a guest appearance from acclaimed sitar player Anoushka Shankar (daughter of Ravi Shankar), who appears on the album cut ‘Am La.’ Net proceeds from Inner World benefit the Mind & Life Institute as well as Social, Emotional and Ethical Learning, an international education program the Dalai Lama developed with Emory University.”

Listen to the first single, “Compassion,” below.

Met her out in Beverly Hills, ay

When she droppin’ low, put it on the Gram

M.I.A – P.O.W.A lyrics

Don’t you wanna
Tell me if you’re gonna
Put down your armour
Promise no more drama

Throw up my hands I say I’m not Dalai Lama
Throw up my hands say I’m not Obama

I’m not Osama
Monsanto farmer
I don’t drink no soda
I believe in Karma
They try to shut me down
I’ve still got the power
They try to hate me
But I still be that lover

I know my mind
In me I’m gonna find
This is my time
And I’m searching for the signs
Throw up my hands
Say this is people power
Throw up my finger and I’m taking on the Tower

Don’t you wanna
Tell me if you’re gonna
Put down your armour
Promise no more drama

You know me I don’t watch TV
People watching me are only gonna see
I’m not your enemy FBI checking me
Curbing my money but that don’t bother me

I’m much tougher
I don’t need the buffer
I keep it light
Keep my head out the gutter

I’ma do it now
I’ma do it
I’ma do it now
I’ma do it
I’ma do it now
I’ma show you how

Put your hands up
Put your middle fingers in the air
M.I.A. make it spray like it’s raining up in here
Think you’re getting baptised
With the sweat on your tree

Where where where
You say where my water there

You say wa wa wa wa wa
I say pa pa pa pa pa
You say wa wa wa wa wa
I say pa pa pa pa pa

Supa-kala fascist, racist, espi-ala-tazors
Posers with cases
They better not erase us
Batta come face us

I’m not Rihanna
I’m not Madonna
I’m not Mariah
Or Ariana
I’ve been around in this world causing drama
The real spice girl, hot girl power

Don’t you wanna
Tell me if you’re gonna
Put down your armour
Promise no more drama
Throw my hands
Say this is people power
Throw up my finger and I’m taking on the Tower

Lyrics

Shindy – Me, Myself & I

[Part 1: Shindy]
Yeah, gib mir zwei Stunden ohne Entourage
Kanacken-Ollen stehen Schlange wie vorm Konsulat
Alles, was nicht von der Platte kommt, ein Störlaut
Ich bin jenseits vom Burnout
Muss mir anhör’n, dass ich ein verwöhnter Bengel wär’
Nur ’n Typ mit bisschen Glück der nichts kann wie Marcus Schenkenberg
Ich hatte seit drei Tagen nicht die Augen zu
Manchmal bereu’ ich das hier wie ein Urlaubstattoo
Man sagt, ich red’ zu wenig vor den Kameras
Was willst du hör’n? ich leb’ seit zwei Jahren à la carte
Egal was ich sag’ – ihr legt aus als wär es ’n Höhenflug
Denn ich hab Level übersprungen als hätte ich ein Lösungsbuch
Yeezies in der Farbe des Rohrzuckers
Sie tun als wär’ das alles Science Fiction – George Lucas
Als hätt’ ich mir ’ne Plastikwelt aufgebaut
Doch die Scheiße ist so echt, dass ich ’ne Pause brauch’

[Hook: Shindy]
Qualm in mei’m Gesicht – me, myself & I
Bademantel, Calvin Kleins
Spiegelbilder in der Panoramafensterscheibe
Teddy Pendergrass in Endlosschleife
Qualm in mei’m Gesicht – me, myself & I
Bademantel, Calvin Kleins
Spiegelbilder in der Panoramafensterscheibe
Teddy Pendergrass in Endlosschleife

[Part 2: Shindy]
Yeah!
Nehm’ ’ne Aspirin aus dem Medizinschrank
Es heißt, ich sei ein arroganter Wichser, so wie Friedmann
Doch selbst nach VIP-Partys, Champagner und G-Funk
Stand ich zwei Stunden später wieder vor dem Fließband
Von den Jordans in die Schuhe mit den Stahlkappen
Wie kann ich aus fünfizg Pfennig eine Mark machen?
Und darum wird die Suite zu einem Arbeitslager
Stress ist mir nie anzuseh’n als wäre ich der Dalai Lama
Weiß nicht, ob der Tag ’n Traum ist oder ob ich tagträum’
Ich glaub’ ich brauch’ nen Zug von Laas’ Joint
Und er dreht ihn auf der GQ
Ist nicht lange her, als ich noch Vierzig-Euro-Jeans trug
Das ist nur das Prelude, Lebensziel ist Dr. Dre
Rauchsteingrau, wie mein Lieblings-Yeezy-Colorway
Wach’ jeden Morgen auf mit vierzig neuen Chats auf WhatsApp
Mein Herz sagt ich muss schlafen, und ich hör darauf – Roxette

[Hook: Shindy]
Qualm in mei’m Gesicht – me, myself & I
Bademantel, Calvin Kleins
Spiegelbilder in der Panoramafensterscheibe
Teddy Pendergrass in Endlosschleife
Qualm in mei’m Gesicht – me, myself & I
Bademantel, Calvin Kleins
Spiegelbilder in der Panoramafensterscheibe
Teddy Pendergrass in Endlosschleife
