In Dis Life is the final album of original music by Native Hawaiian singer Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwo'ole before his death. Released in 1996, it is his most critically acclaimed album, although it's not his most popular.[citation needed] It shows a slight change to Iz's musical style, being more dark and more of an alternative music-styled album (although it is not rock). There are several strangely upbeat songs with sad lyrics, such as tracks 4, 5, and 8, but the majority of them are melancholy.
