It was Zane Lowe who recently introduced the world to Gallant, highlighting the track “Weight In Gold” on his first Beats1 radio show. Naturally, people took notice, and Gallant is now returning the favor with some new music.
Technically out on Friday, “Skipping Stones” is part of a two-song digital single being released by Red Bull Sound Select. The track features something of a duet with Jhené Aiko, who works with Gallant to craft a “future soul” sound of gentle textures and sharp falsettos. As told to The FADER, the music was written “for the lonely ones this Valentine’s Day.”
The “Skipping Stones” digital single is out February 5 via Red Bull Sound Select.
