Clyde Carson ft. Wyclef Jean - Where Doves Fly

Posted 5 years ago
Featuring:
Album:
Somethin' to Speak About EP

After dozens of listens to Prince’s famous single, I have to admit I still have no clue what it sounds like When Doves Cry (I mean, was he referring to his own high-pitched vocalizations? The instrumental backdrop? The song as a whole?). In contrast, Clyde Carson‘s evocatively-titled new EP single, Where Doves Fly offers a firm, if bleak answer to its central question: in the streets of Oakland, the slums of Haiti, and anyplace where social injustice makes life a cheap commodity. An unknown producer’s sample-infused reggae groove sets an appropriately gritty mood as Carson paints a dark lyrical portrait of life in the ghetto, where the constant power struggle between pimps, gangsters and dealers on one side, and crooked cops on the other results in safety for none. Fugees alum and solo heavyweight Wyclef Jean guests, gracing the record with his inimitably gruff, cracked vocals. If this unflinching look at the urban jungle has you nodding along, more fresh tunes are on the way: Clyde Carson’s new EP, Somethin’ to Talk About, is scheduled for release in May.
