“Can someone tell me if it’s wrong to be / so mad about you,” posits singer and songwriter Son Little on “Mad About You”, a yearning love song from his latest critically acclaimed full length New Magic.
Watch Son Little aka Aaron Livingston navigate flirtatious moments and traverse deserted terrain in the song’s new video HERE.
Son Little first came to the public’s attention through his collaborations with The Roots and RJD2, and has since toured with artists as diverse as Mumford & Sons, Kelis, Shakey Graves and Leon Bridges. In addition, he won a Grammy for his work producing a Mavis Staples EP.
GQ describes Son Little as “soul music for the hip hop generation”, and the tracks on New Magic certainly draw from the diaspora of American blues and soul that includes not only modern R&B, but also rock & roll and hip-hop. He then transforms them into a singular sound that is propelled by his mesmerizing and soulful vocals and production that artfully balances between rustic immediacy and hip hop cut-and-paste.
Son Little is also announcing new 2018 tour dates supporting Dr. Dog that begin May 2nd at Boston’s House of Blues and ends May 17 at Birmingham, Alabama’s Iron City. All upcoming dates are listed below.
