R.LUM.R Just Released His Smooth New Song “With My Words” [PREMIERE]

Alternative R&B artist, R.LUM.R just dropped his latest single, “With My Words.”

R.LUM.R (pronounced Ar-Lamar) became a music streaming sensation last year, when his breakout ballad “Frustrated” blew up on Spotify. It’s amassed more than 40 million streams and he became the face of Spotify’s Alt R&B playlist.

The single was featured on his 2017 debut EP, Afterimage.

Now, the singer, songwriter and instrumentalist is back with his a new song that’s true to his roots. The classically trained acoustic guitarist fuses R&B, soul, electronic, and pop to forge a sound just as versatile in range as his lyrics on love and loss.

“This song is about the intensity of wanting to express yourself, but not yet knowing how to do it,” R.LUM.R told Okayplayer.

R.LUM.R will be back on the road starting November 5 in Chicago. See the tour dates here.
