Ekali‘s arsenal of unreleased music shrank just slightly with the release of “Back To You.” The single hails from the producer’s upcoming debut album, led by the Reo Cragun-assisted “Runaway” and the emotive Wafia feature, “Be Fine.” With “Back To You,” the LP’s cast of vocal collaborators expands to newly encompass Kiiara.
Her inimitable soprano is the sonic cherry atop the synth and bass guided stagger of “Back To You’s” rhythmic arrangement. Bright chords shimmer at the break downs, complementing the breathy ascendance of Kiiara’s vocal and creating tonal contrast with the anchored bass.
“Back To You” was but one of the releases that Ekali promised fans in a tweet published on October 23. Next up will be Ekali’s highly sought collaboration with ILLENIUM, “Hard To Say Goodbye,” followed by the formal announcement of his A World Away tour and a merch line.
