about

Osunlade returns with his latest full length album, Peacock.
Recorded in homage to the orisha Ochun, an album about love relations, the heart, acceptance, vulnerability and change.
While love is the reason, funk is the cause. With the exception of the albums two electronic explorations the album is fully realized in classic analog soul funk with Osunlade taking the reigns of all or most instrumentation and vocals. A very personal one indeed, yet this 8 song continuous play takes us back to the beauty of music listening.

Track Name: Change
Change
(Osunlade, Yoruba People’s Music, Sony Atv)

You could live a lifetime
But are u living life’s time
Existence is never really never advised
Ill be keeping in mind
Revelations of the time
Got my minds open and wide
We could be the reason, without us there’s no treason but..
Change

Mother says don't ever try to be too clever
Those are ones who struggle with pride
But I don't care the reason its better just believing
That all will be as one none denied
Are u feelin’ guilty for what u thought was filthy?
Change
Track Name: Better Man
Better Man
(Osunlade, Yoruba People’s Music, Ascap/ Sony Atv)

i see lightning when your round
and the world seems like its home
i see daydreams in your eyes
and your writing your own song
i see only that big smile
and it makes me wanna fly
i feel lucky to hold your hand
and its frightening cuz im shy

you dont know how much i adore you
im a better man yeah for the better of you
(he's a better man yeah all because of you, he’s a better man yeah, he’s a better man)
i have put aside all my constant insecurities
now i can see all the possibility
(he's a better man yeah all because of you, he’s a better man yeah, he’s a better man)
you dont know how the sun shines around me
the breeze when it cleans me, the clouds now they protect me
(he's a better man yeah all because of you, he’s a better man yeah, he’s a better man)

i see lightning when your round
and the world seems like its home
i see daydreams in your eyes
and your writing your own song
i see only that big smile
and it makes me wanna fly
i feel lucky to hold your hand
and its frightening cuz im shy
Track Name: Your Love
Your Love
(Osunlade, Yoruba People’s Music, Ascap/ Sony Atv)

your love is only my desire
and i dont require more of you
your love is only my desire
i can retire the days of my youth

i always thought that love would feel the same
(you always thought that love was felt with pain)
it always happened that we played the game
(you always had excuses on the brain)
in our life we always point the blame
(u never felt a love before this came)
this time i see it in a different frame
(u made me realize that love remains)

your love is only my desire
and i dont require more of you
your love is only my desire
i can retire the days of my youth

i never realized what friends would say
(you always thought that love was felt with pain)
instead i did them wrong left them all at bay
(you always had excuses on the brain)
im come to see that things were just a shame
(u never felt a love before this came)
this time i see it in a different frame
(u made me realize that love remains)
