British Soul singer Kwabs has just premiered a new track called “Layback” via The Line Of Best Fit ahead of the release of his debut LP Love + War. The track produced by Dave Okumu is a version of an older song which has been refurbished as a dreamy R&B jam that Kwabs infuses with his soulful voice.
Okumu marks out a solid rhythm with crisp percussion and mechanical trap-style hats whilst allowing gentle keys and Kwabs’ powerful vocals to mingle and collide in front of the beat. Listen to the track below and check out Kwabs’ list of tour dates at the bottom of the page. Love + War drops on September 11 via Atlantic.
Kwabs will perform at the following venues during October:
Manchester Academy 2 (11)
Birmingham Institiute (12)
Oxford Academy (13)
Brighton Concorde 2 (16)
London Roundhouse (17)
Bristol Anson Rooms (19)
