Following the first taste of his forthcoming album, ‘Love Is A Lottery’, and a sold-out UK headline tour, SONGER has released the cheeky and confident-induced ‘4:59’ featuring grime royalty D Double E.
Built up by an infectious percussive, shuffled rhythm and syncopated hi-hats, the garage beat lends itself to SONGER’s playful lyrics and signature flow creating an instant feel-good track. First played across his UK Tour, fans have been waiting for this track. Showcasing his unique flow and conscious lyricism, SONGER is as natural a lyricist as you’ll find in the UK. Talking on his latest release SONGER says;
“4:59” is an instant feel-good song, with a garage style and lyrics that transport you to happy memories of partying and friendship. The combination of a new school artist and legendary MC create an atmosphere to boost any situation, no matter who you are.”
With an incredible story so far, SONGER has quietly been building up his narrative from the ‘shed’ in his family's back garden. Recording 3 of the most watched BL@CKBOX freestyles of all time, over 85 million streams, and heading out on a sold-out debut UK headline tour - without a booking agent and adding an extra date due to demand - SONGER has built himself a true cult-like fan base all without the help of any label, a credit to SONGER and his artistry. Instead of following the trends of UK rap and rapping about sex, money, drugs, and cars, SONGER prefers to keep his subject matters close to his own experiences saying;
“I’ll go through phases where I’ll have poor mental health. I’ll get anxiety. I don’t wanna say I’ve been depressed but... close enough init.”
With his next project due anytime soon, festival slots at Reading Festival and NASS Festival to name a few, 2023 is set to be SONGER’s biggest year to date.
