Jarell Perry – Black Valentine [STREAM]
Yesterday, Jarell Perry released his new single “Black Valentine” from his upcoming EP White. The song is a bit of a shift for him sonically, focusing more on the softer tones of his voice and aiming at low-key intensity. Perry pours his heart out, desperately asking for someone to be his valentine. This new mature sound is a promising sign in the evolution of one of the industry’s top rising artists.
Back in May of last year, we spotlighted Perry as a part of our “Music You Should Be Listening To” series. And for good reason. He has a sound that is both current and unique. And
The EP will be released later this month digitally, and is completely produced by his DJ and constant collaborator HSVN. The pair is currently on tour with Yuna, and will be at SXSW next month premiering new music from the EP.
If you feel so inclined, contribute to the White EP & the SXSW Experience by donating to the team’s Kickstarter campaign. You can catch Jarell live on tour this week in Boston (2/6) and Brooklyn (2/8). He’s also playing a free show in Los Angeles, next Monday February 10th at The Bootleg Theater.
