Stream Son Little's New EP 'invisible'

Today, Son Little is pleased to share his new EP, invisible, out today on ANTI-. Recorded at Paris’s iconic Studios Ferber, the EP sees Little putting his songs in the hands of an outside producer -- Renaud Letang (Feist, Manu Chao) -- for the first time, offering up a tantalizing preview of Little’s third full-length album, set for release early next year.

Equal parts vintage and modern, invisible blends classic soul and old-school R&B into a timeless swirl fueled by gritty instrumental virtuosity and raw, raspy vocals. EP opener and lead single, “hey rose”, marries distorted, jittery guitar with smooth, sinuous vocals, while the slow-burning “about her. again.” injects trippy psychedelia into Sam Cooke soul, and a cover of “Skid” from Love’s long lost masterpiece Black Beauty uses a 1973 meditation on homelessness to make a pointed statement about our indifference to suffering in modern America. invisible closes with a remixed version of “hey rose” by English musician and DJ, Quantic. “For this remix I wanted to bring in a different mood to the song, it’s always good to bring the song to a different place,” the producer says. “The original is very happy and bouncy, so I wanted to lead into a bit more of a vibey space. I’m a fan of Son Little’s voice and this proves its versatility.”

Born to a preacher and a teacher in Los Angeles, Little first came to international prominence with his self-titled 2015 debut, following collaborations with hip-hop legends The Roots and electronic pioneer RJD2. In 2016, Little showed off his production chops, earning a GRAMMY Award for his work helming Mavis Staples’ acclaimed See That My Grave Is Kept Clean, and in 2017, he released a critically lauded sophomore album, New Magic.

Little will tour in support of invisible through November and December. A full list of dates are below, with tickets on-sale now.
