Star Slinger is closing out 2016 with his third new collection of music this year following January’s Sketchy EP and May’s beat tape Volume 2. The We Could Be More EP finds the pop-minded Manchester producer supplying his talents to a range of vocalists including Dawn Richard, James Vincent McMorrow, Sam Sparro, Sara Z, and Tunji Ige. We’ve already heard the Tinashe-cowritten title track, and now the whole EP is available to stream a day ahead of release. Listen below.
Here’s how Darren Williams himself explains the EP:
Since a kid I’d been listening to radio, my parent’s old records — as well as discovering music for myself via Zines, clubs, music venues & a lot of record shopping. I’ve been through every phase a teenager goes thru. I was simultaneously into everything from folk, punk, new wave, 90semo trance, house, indie, hip hop, r n b, neo soul, uk garage, happy hardcore, grime, etc but of course with that — you fine tune your tastes eventually. I think I have listened to so much music that I’m still doing that. The one common thing in my life is that I love good pop music. I love the art of a relatable song & with this EP I wanted to do that.
We Could Be More is out 12/2 via OWSLA. Pre-order it here.
