Published Sep 12, 2019Former Attack in Black/Grey Kingdom songwriter Spencer Burton is gearing up for his first children's album The Mountain Man, and to help give us an idea of what's in store, the Ontario artist has shared the new track "Whatever I Want to Be."
In a statement, Burton explained the following of the song:
"Whatever I Want to Be" is a soft anthem for the child of today. Now more than ever children all around the world need to be reminded that they can be, literally whatever they want to be. They can be whatever it is that makes them comfortable in their own skin be it a boy, a girl, maybe they feel like they're neither… it doesn't matter. They are who they were born to be and that is what matters most. Superheroes, princesses, cookies WHATEVER THEY WANT TO BE.
