New Music: Milo Tain – In The Sky

Milo Tain In The Sky

Multi-talented rising artist Milo Tain reaches into our souls with the vibed-out, chill jam “In The Sky,” off his forthcoming debut EP.

According to the 21-year-old singer, songwriter and saxophonist, the song was written with the purpose of telling a story of life, love and death. It addresses the importance of living live to the fullest before it’s too late. Milo’s style sits comfortably within the realms of R&B/Soul and is reminiscent of the late Johnnie Wilder, Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye.

“In The Sky” builds slowly with textures and reverbs, creating a sense of delicacy. While, Tain’s saxophone solo laces the song with character.  According to the Liverpool, UK native, the lyrics were influenced by Amy Winehouse and her tragic story. “Despite her sudden change in lifestyle she was denied the love and support she so desperately needed. In the end Amy’s achievements and pure love transcended her to a higher place,” he says.

“When you look up into the sky, you’ll realize, that you’ll never be alone / Stop with all the second guessing, before you see what you’ll be missing / Close your eyes and spread your wings, high into the sky,” he sings.

Ok, Tyrand we see you!

North Carolina based soul singer, Tyrand, returns with an uptempo, new single titled “Heartbreaker,” but he’s looking to allow you to celebrate the dangerous woman on the dance floor.

“I know you tell me, I’m number one to you / But it makes me wonder, who you made number two? / With a walk so smooth girl, you could wrap any man, around your finger, and play him just like a band,” he sings.

The single is the first release off Tyrand’s upcoming EP, My Time, which follows his 2013 debut album Love Lounge.

Listen to Marvin Gaye’s Posthumous “What’s Going On” Duet With BJ the Chicago Kid

Marvin-and-BJ

Motown Records has released a special 10” vinyl EP of Marvin Gaye‘s What’s Going On in celebration of the classic albums 45th anniversary.

The EP features the original 7” mono single versions of “What’s Going On” and “God Is Love,” as well as two “Motown: Re-imagined” versions of the title track: a unplugged “Coffeehouse Mix,” and a posthumous duet with Motown signee BJ the Chicago Kid.

“Singing alongside Marvin Gaye is truly a dream come true for me. Uncle Marvin is, and will always be one of the greatest,” BJ told Pitchfork. “This collaboration also solidifies why I’m here in a time when it is proving to be more difficult for artists to find outlets for music with live vocals and live instrumentation. Marvin Gaye wasn’t only the standard for R&B, he also made a huge impact on pop music & pop culture. Long live R&B.”

Take a listen to the new duet version of “What’s Going On” below, and you can purchase the EP here.
