- Producer: The Invisible Men
- Album: Original Soundtrack from Season 1 of Empire
Update: The Max & Dania-directed visuals for CH's NY Raining single have been added.
Charles Hamilton is back? The Booth's own Yoh recently asked if this was something we wanted, but much like Raining in NY it seems it was bound to happen eventually. The bigger unknown was what this new CH would sound like. We were able to catch a glimpse through a snippet released a few weeks back, but now we have our first official single from an artist who seems to have pulled back on his previously characteristic Sonic obsession. NY Raining features the artist flowing over the upbeat horns of The Invisible Men's (see: Fancy) boardwork, with the lovely Rita Ora providing hook work. The single will live on Hamilton's upcoming debut with Republic Records, in addition to the Original Soundtrack from Season 1 of Empire, due out March 10. A fitting return? Let us know what you think in the comments.
