The first single from D/Will’s forthcoming The Reset is the stellar “Kill Me.” With its fantastic fake-out beginning full of narcissism and vanity, it changes the retro soul tune to a heavy hitting beat with the mantra “Kill that” repeated over and over.

The industrial, grimey music paints a portrait of a dystopia that may hit a little too close to home for a generation of self-absorbed social media addicts (myself included). D/Will’s message is poignant and true: he is calling out to God for humbleness in a time where that has become an increasingly difficult trait and to rise above our culture of me me me. He doesn’t do it without a sense of humor though; “Instagramming everything before I eat/Like it’s the new grace” is a great line and his comment on buying new shoes then giving change to a homeless man, only to share the experience on social media for the satisfaction is clever and twisted.

“Kill Me” is all about an attitude adjustment and a wake-up call for a generation.
