With a resume that includes working with the likes of Gil Scott Heron, Mos Def, Wyclef Jean, Mary J. Blige, DJ Premier just to name a few, instrumentalist/singer/songwriter Corey King will demand your attention whether you like it or not.
King is preparing an album titled Lashes slated to release on September 9th via Ropeadope Records (pre-order). The album was inspired after a stop in Germany three years ago when King got immersed in the dance culture there. He was on tour at the time and started experimenting with fusing electronic with acoustic sounds. What at the time was considered just something to pass the time has led to a full album.
Today, we have for you the second single off Lashes called “If.” It was written, produced and sung by King with the assist of Alan Hampton (bass) and Jamire Williams (drums).
