More than three years after the unveiling of his critically acclaimed debut album Reach, national recording artist, KamBINO, is finally set to release his highly anticipated sophomore album entitled IN·DE·PEN·DENCE. The apparent disappearance of the MC led many to question whether or not he’d abandoned the craft which landed him on’s “11 Freshmen of 2011” and “Best of 2010” lists, amongst others. IN·DE·PEN·DENCE sets out to answer that question with a resounding “NO.”

“I tried to kind of ease people into my ‘re-emergence’ with some collaborations and such, but none of that compares to what this album is going to give them,” Kam explains.

“I really took my time developing mentally, spiritually, physically and lyrically, and now— now it’s time to let people get a glimpse of the new me. The true me. The INDEPENDENT me.”

IN·DE·PEN·DENCE creatively portrays for the listeners what true freedom looks like all the while inviting and encouraging them to seek it for themselves. It also serves as a declaration to the world of Kam’s freedom from mindsets, opinions, and actions that successfully held him back for years – musically and otherwise.

“He who the Son sets free is free indeed,” Kam says. “I’ve literally been living out 2 Corinthians 3 start to finish. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty and being changed from glory to glory; all that and more I’ve been able to experience. I can’t wait to share that journey with the listeners and pray they follow my lead and find true independence by following my Leader.”

IN·DE·PEN·DENCE will release via all major digital retailers on July 9, 2013. While Kam has been approached with various offers, he’s chosen, appropriately, to release this project independently. Be on the lookout for his first single, “Eternal (The Whole Time),” dropping soon.
