Leonard Friend - Middle of the Night

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Leonard Friend
Album:

Leonard Friend‘s combo of falsetto vocals, erotic themes and eerie, slinky electronic production has earned him comparisons to everyone from Prince and Justin Timberlake to Robin Thicke and Jamie Lidell; in reality, though, there’s nobody out there who sounds quite like the Brooklyn-based singer and producer. Today, the artist returns to showcase his inimitable style once again on freshly-minted EP single Middle of the Night. More upbeat than the previously-featured Every Woman, this cut finds Friend layering Chipmunk-pitched vocal samples over a frantic, four-on-the-floor percussion rhythm and glossy ‘80s synths as he poses a romantic interest the rhetorical question, “Who’s gonna love you in the Middle of the Night?” Fans will be able to find this indie-R&B banger and plenty more where it came from on the artist’s next EP. Keep it locked for further details on the project, which as yet lacks both a title and a solid drop date.
