“This was inspired by an energy of renewal. This was one of the first songs I wrote after my brother’s passing that I spoke on it at all. It was like a release of pent-up emotions and just throwing it all out. The message is growth. Learning how to deal with growing pains and becoming the person I see myself as and leaving the old me behind.” – Peter $un explained
‘Metamorphosis (Butterfly)’ is an intentional and aspirational piece about embracing change and manifesting evolution. The reflective tune possesses thudding drum-laden instrumentation flavored with a soulful hip-hop vibration. Furthermore, “Metamorphosis (Butterfly)” is featured on Peter $un’s brand new EP, entitled, “Phone Calls Gimme Anxiety.” Creating the project was a therapeutic and transformative endeavor for Peter $un. He channeled everything from his experiences and emotions navigating his career to the loss of his brother to drug addiction into the music.

“This is my most vulnerable. I feel like it’s my growing process from ‘Scumbaby.’ It’s a cocoon phase before the album where the transformation happens. This project was a venting moment for me and a closing chapter on my past.” – Peter $un explained
Throughout the six-track project, Peter $un expresses themes of personal growth, self-awareness, escapism, and retribution before ending with “U Smell Like Da Color Yellow,” — an eloquent nod to the neo-soul movement and his mother, who first introduced him to the power of music as therapy. ‘Phone Calls Gimme Anxiety’ sets the tone for Peter $un’s next chapter.
Peter $un grew up listening to jazz at night with his father and waking up to his mother’s favorites – D’Angelo and Lauryn Hill. Affectionately known as “Sunny,” Peter $un commits all his emotions, thoughts, and truths to tape.
