Rising newcomer ARLO has carved a niche for himself making electro-pop that carries all the grit and glamor of old school funk and soul. The East Londoner’s first single of 2019, “Changing,” adds another element to the mix: hip-hop, in the form of a glorious guest feature from Mick Jenkins. Take a listen to its world premiere below.
Speaking on the track, ARLO says that “‘Changing’ is all about when you change but your friends don’t. There’s so much attitude and bravado in the record. Having Mick jump on the track is a true blessing, he killed his verse and bought a whole new energy to the record.”
