He recently dropped a lead single, “Please Won’t Please,” shared a release date for his upcoming album and announced a 2019 tour with Beirut.  The Miami-born, New York-based musician, born Roberto Carlos Lange, will tour as direct support of indie rock/folk group Beirut in North America and Europe in the winter and spring as well as play additional select headline shows. The tour will bring music from his sixth studio album This Is How You Smile, out on March 8, to fans all over the world.Known as the creator of Latin pride anthems like “It’s My Brown Skin,” his latest album continues to explore his identity more introspectively, looking at both the past and the present. While his last album, 2016’s Private Energy, was Lange’s self-love response to the social and political experiences faced by people of color in the last years, his forthcoming album This Is How You Smile gets more personal with music inspired by his upbringing. One song, “Seen My Aura,” tells the story of his hot pavement walk alongside his brother to the community pool. Other subjects he explores include his relationship with his father, childhood relationships and love. In his words, the album is “a person approaching you, slowly, for 40 minutes.” “Please Won’t Please” is the world’s first taste of Lange’s newest material and the album’s opening song; the only one on the album that tackles a collective experience. Like many of his songs, “Please Won’t Please” poetically tackles heavy, socio-political realities faced by immigrants and people of color. The song is reminiscent of Private Energy and highlights the sacrifices people of color make just to exist in a world that oppresses them, but also their unwavering ability to keep going. “History shows that brown won’t go, brown just glows/And we’ll light ourselves on fire, just to see if anyone believes,” he sings.A portion of the proceeds of his album will go to United We Dream, an immigrant rights organization.
