British Artist Frank Addai Reveals New Single Feeling You

Frank Addai is back with “Feeling You” from his forthcoming EP. Addai received attention earlier this year for his cover of Naughty Boy’s “Runnin’ (Lose It All).” Solarium produced “Feeling You” and Addai explains the story behind the song:

“The song stemmed from a simple phone call I had with Solarium, about my desire to create some soulful house music that is R&B melody heavy. I wanted people to vibe to the music, but also appreciate the musical sensibilities. Solarium led on the production and writing on this record, and as soon as I heard the track, I thought it was a banger. I just had to record it and put it out there.”

Addai’s untitled EP is scheduled for release at the beginning of 2018.
