Rhye’s sophomore full length BLOOD is expected to arrive on February 2nd, and it’s probably one of the most highly anticipated releases of this first quarter of the new year. We’ve already melted to songs like Taste and Count To Five, now the beloved Los Angeles based alt R&B and downtempo soul duo, consisting of Milosh and Robin Hannibal, have revealed a gorgeous new cut named Song For You via a lyric video. 

“‘Song for You’ was written for her. Listen to it in a way where it becomes your own,” shared RHYE frontman Milosh. “It holds a lot of emotion and occupies a special place both in my heart and as the heart of this new album.” Sigh your weekend away to this languorous wafting, sensual floating joint from the acclaimed duo. Purchase from iTunes, here. You can also pre-order BLOOD from iTunes, here.

Very little needs to be said when a new song surfaces from Rhye. We’re all much familiar with the Los Angeles based Canadian/Danish duo’s alt R&B,  chiffon funk, and downtempo soul. Milosh and Robin Hannibal are highly esteemed musicians, and anything they give us is gold, much less a plush grooving, sensuous wafting song Count To Five. The single even arrives with welcome news of a new Rhye album. Sophomore full length Blood is expected to arrive in a couple of months, and there’s no doubt that it’s going to be one of the most highly anticipated releases of early 2018. Count To Five is available now from iTunes, here.

We’re no strangers to High In The Woods. In fact, we fell for it HARD, nearly a year ago when mysterious musician johan dropped the dark slinking alt pop and experimental R&B pop song. High In The Woods, which involves Rhye’s Robin Hannibal on production, is a sexy smoldering, mischievously tip toeing spectacular that reminds me of Glass Animals and Miike Snow, but heavily steeped in future vibes. Well, ladies and gentlemen, a new version of High In The Woods has surfaced, and this time around, johan has hooked up with hip hop star Vic Mensa for a deeper rumbling, darker bristling take on the fine tune. Vic Mensa’s verse fits in seamlessly with the sinuous twisting, sly swerving aesthetic of High In The Woods. johan states: “In ‘High in the Woods’ I tried to capture a feeling of suburban mischief and adventure that I feel really nostalgic for, and still try to find in my life to this day. I’m super excited about Vic’s verse–he’s coming at the story from a very different place but still really connected with the overall message of it.” johan promises new music to come in the near future.

Mysterious artist Johan continues to dazzle with new song High In The Woods, a slinky dark alt pop and experimental R&B song that even involves Robin Hannibal of Rhye on the production end of things. High In The Woods is a mind trip. It smolders seductively and tip toes mischievously, once again reminding me of Glass Animals and Miike Snow but saturated in future vibes and strutting with hip hop swagger. Johan coos and whispers alluringly on the surreptitious song, leaving us high on his music.

This next one could easily be one of the most surprising and buzz attracting new tune of the day. As a huge fan of Florida band Hundred Waters and their experimental, artsy music, it was totally unexpected to encounter a Skrillex remix of their song Show Me Love, much less one that features Chance The Rapper, Moses Sumney, and Robin Hannibal of Rhye. Need a moment to digest this roster of much contrasting talent? I needed a long one, to be honest. Sonny Moore even dropped a self directed music video for this star studded affair, and he certainly managed to create a very fresh new version of Show Me Love that combines the bewitching quality of the original with a new hip hop, soul, and electronica conglomeration of hooking sound. Ultimately, this works wonders because of the original track, and Nicole Miglis’ uniquely spellbinding voice. Purchase the remix, here.

You UK fellas are all lucky ducks, because Jessie Ware’s sophomore album Tough Love came out today on that side of the pond. Us Americans have to wait until October 21! But joy of joys, Jessie has given us all a treat in the meantime, an unreleased song, not on Tough Love. Turns out, during some recording sessions at the Red Bull Studios London last year, Jessie worked with Robin Hannibal (of Rhye, among other things). Jessie Ware and Robin Hannibal… I mean, can you imagine? Well, you don’t have to imagine anymore. 12 may have never made it on to Tough Love, but its a strong stand alone demo, as it is. It’s a beautiful, seductive, and smoky gem, sure to give you some shivers. Jessie Ware states that the song is for her Sam (d’awww), and she hopes we like it. “Play it late and go kiss someone”. Alright, I will. I’m going to melt away to it at home tonight, and kiss my cat. D’awww.

Laura Welsh is yet another new electronic R&B/pop artist to emerge from across the pond with a great sound. Her new song Cold Front is produced by none other than Robin Hannibal of Rhye. It’s an excellent new single that will drop on July 15. There sure is a strong wave of these kind of artists from the UK as of late. Laura Welsh previously worked with Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) on the excellent, beautiful song Unravel. Listen to that one below.

Yep, I love my Scandinavian pop. Quadron is a Danish duo formed a few years ago by Robin Hannibal and Coco Maja Hastrup Karshøj. The big surprise here is that Robin Hannibal is also one half of the (up till recently anonymous) duo Rhye. Click play and you’ll hear how different Quadron is from Rhye. Quadron’s single Hey Love is a great, catchy, easy to love soulful pop track with some wonderful beats.
