Not that you needed it, but here’s an aide-mémoire: trap aficionado RL Grime’s full-length debut album, Void, is only a few months away. The second single off the album, the aptly named Reminder, just premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show, but it isn’t quite what you’d expect.
Featuring the vocal talents of Tom Krell from UK act How To Dress Well, who previously made an appearance on Shlohmo’s Laid Out EP, Reminder is a smooth and sultry R&B cut. Mature, melancholic and mesmerizing, the vocally driven song offers fans a decidedly different look at one of trap music’s brightest stars.
You can pick up RL’s debut album, Void, this November via WeDidIt.
