A few months ago, Ten Walls sparked massive outrage by posting a homophobic rant on his Facebook page. He later apologized, but retribution from the dance music community was swift—he was dropped from his booking agency and withdrawn from all his tour dates. He appears to be attempting a comeback, however. Today, he premiered a new track, "Shining," via LGBTW rights organization LGL. It features vocals from transgender singer Alex Radford and can be heard below, where we’ve also included statements from both Ten Walls and LGL. (via Resident Advisor)
"Finally. More than happy to share with you the new song, 'Shining' (Ten Walls feat. Alex Radford). Behind the walls of silence stood emotional, sleepless and creativity filled days and nights. Together with Alex we made it and it is yours now. I would especially like to thank Lithuanian LGBT Community LGL for their support all this time. Therefore the premiere of 'Shining' will take place in their official website. Please visit the page, listen and download the song for free here. Christmas came earlier this year so shine, as you never did before. Peace. TW."
LBT says: "One of the main principles of our organization is to build bridges rather than barriers. We can become a community free from fears and prejudices only by being open and ready to learn from our mistakes. The National LGBT rights organization LGL applauds the initiative by Ten Walls to premiere his new song 'Shining' at the web platform of the national LGBT organization. We firmly believe that this will become a small step towards creating an open and inclusive environment in the Lithuanian society."
