King Henry - What About Me
Grammy-nominated recording artist, King Henry, has previously teamed up with critically-acclaimed emerging artists to craft his forward-thinking music. Now the musical polymath opens up the next chapter in his ever-expansive repertoire, as he branches out beyond production duties and sings for the first time on his new track ‘What About Me’ (released on Black Butter/Duke City, 11 October 2018).
After releasing ‘Bad For Me’ (featuring Ellie Watson) earlier this year, ‘What About Me’ is the second of three Black Butter/Duke City-released singles due out this year. Made whilst on a trip through NYC,‘What About Me’ is the first release to feature King Henry solely on vocals. He distorts his voice with a haunting effect whilst singing of the lament felt at the end of a relationship. The production balancing his lyrics with a deeper more melancholic sound, underpinned with a 4/4 groove.
"My aim with these new releases is to make songs that you can listen to late at night walking the streets of any big city but could also close your eyes and vibe at a dark nightclub somewhere." KING HENRY
