Noah Kahan Releases New Single “Animal”

Today, Vermont singer and songwriter Noah Kahan drops his new fan-favorite track, “Animal,” from his upcoming album, I Was / I Am, out September 17th.

“Animal” was chosen by Noah’s fans as his next single after he teased the song on socials. On the song, his falsetto soars over head-bobbing beats and handclaps as he sings, “Oh, sometimes I feel like an animal. Oh, I climb so high just to feel a fall and let it go. So, look me in the eyes, am I someone else?” Of the meaning behind the song, Noah says, “‘Animal’ is about dissociating from who you thought yourself to be. I wrote it with a friend of mine. He and I speak at length about mental health and what it’s like to live with depression, and I think this song is fundamentally about that everyday struggle.”

“Animal” is the third song Noah has released this summer from his new album, I Was / I Am, out next month. It follows his anthemic singles, “Part of Me” and “Godlight,” which capture his signature storytelling and evocative lyrics. The tracks have amassed nearly 10 million combined streams to date and received praised from the likes of Billboard, SPIN, Entertainment Tonight, and more.
