OKP Premiere: Adrian Younge Drops "Sittin" By The Radio" f. Loren Oden + Announces New LP!
Adrian Younge‘s successful career as a composer, music producer and arranger. With his work alongside Ghostface Killah on Twelve Reasons to Die II in the rearview mirror, another celebrated effort from this talented creative inches into plain sight.
“Sittin’ By The Radio,” a track that we are ecstatic to premiere on Okayplayer today, finds Adrian Younge harnessing those classic elements that we’ve come to appreciate from him and channel them into this soulful romp which features Loren Oden.
The energy that fuels this cut is powered by the imagination of Younge and can be found in spades on his forthcoming album, Something About April II. The sequel to his 2012 effort, Something About April, Younge promises another dose of dark grit, heavy psychedelic soul and cinematic instrumentals with a hip-hop flair for your ear holes.
If you have a preference for analogue-based recording and live instrumentation, then “Sittin’ By The Radio’ is it. Imbued with the warm, charisma and effortless cool that you would find in a Ennio Morricone film, Adrian Younge is a purveyor of pure sound that you won’t find anywhere else in contemporary music.
Something About April II, which is out January 22, 2016, also features guest vocals from Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab, Bilal, R&B legend Rapheal Saadiq, the aforementioned Loren Oden and Karolina.
