Further building out an immersive sonic world, gold-certified pop phenom  AJ Mitchell  has officially released a new single entitled “ STOP .” The song is the next chapter to be unveiled from his anxiously awaited full-length debut album, Skyview , due out this year and executive produced by Mike Dean.  The track pairs a thumping bass line and flurry of funk guitar with a showstopping vocal performance. He delivers charismatic verses before igniting the instantly unshakable hook, “I don’t wanna stop, baby it’s our time . ” “STOP” continues the journey that was set in “ CAMERAS ON ,” released late last Month. The conceptual lyric video shared today picks up where “ CAMERAS ON ” left off. While “ CAMERAS ON ” depicts the story of AJ dealing with the darker sides of fame and his previous experiences with the content collective Team 10, the new lyric video finds him walking away from the cameras to the stage, depicting his passion and dedication to the music and what truly matters.  

Sebastian Rhodes teams up with Singapore-based Filipina artist Ysa Yaneza on new single “Miss Me”

 

Here’s another collaboration to get you in the mood for fun.

Aussie indie sensation Sebastian Rhodes recruits Filipina-Singaporean artist Ysa Yanesa on the hyper-pop anthem “Miss Me”— out today, September 4, 2020 (Friday), on all digital platforms worldwide.

Exploring the glitchy but shimmering surface of pop music, the eclectic duo trades verses over a slightly experimental production.

Turning the spirit of collaboration into a messy kind of fun, “Miss Me” is a brash, unapologetic kiss-off that takes a swipe at someone’s past relationships. According to Rhodes, he wrote the PC-inspired jam for all his exes who are trying to come back into his life, now that things are looking up and exciting. “They were nowhere to be to be found during the tough times of extreme depression,” he adds.

After writing the first verse, the Aussie hyper-pop act realized that he needed another voice to air out his frustrations, lyrically and musically. “I found Ysa through an online zoom show and I was so impressed with her performance that I reached out to her on Instagram,” says Rhodes. “Ysa had the exact sound I was looking for to complete this single. I sent her the track and we wrote it using voice memos. We both finally recorded our vocals and sent it off to be mixed and mastered.”

The collaboration paved way for a sleek, colorful bop that wouldn’t feel out of place on records released by Charli XCX, Hannah Diamond, and Caroline Polachek. Songwriting-wise, Sebastian Rhodes displays a no-frills, confessional approach as he name-checks some of his exes in the latest release. “Artists like Taylor Swift often write about particular relationships, but I've never heard a song that drops 5 exes,” the hyper-pop star shares in a statement. “That's next level. It was incredibly therapeutic to reflect and laugh about how I've been treated in the past. I wish nothing but the best for every single one of them! It's not coming from a place of hate.”

Sebastian Rhodes’ “Miss Me” (Feat. Ysa Yaneza) is now out on Spotify and other streaming/digital platforms.
