Yebba steps away from her R&B chops to sing the more delicate pop-oriented “October Sky.” The singer, who has already won a Grammy for her performance of the Bee Gees’ “How Deep Is Your Love” is getting ready for the release of her debut album. She also made a strong impression with her 2018 single “Evergreen” and being the featured vocalist on Robert Glasper’s “F*ck Yo Feelings.” The lyric video for “October Sky” comes one week after she did a live-streamed performance of the song. Yebba’s words about personal loss and her powerful delivery sound beautifully vulnerable. Her vocal mastery comes in towards the middle after a subtle beginning.
This is the second single from her forthcoming Dawn album that was delayed due to the pandemic. A$AP Rocky and Smino have guest spots on the 12-song final tracklisting. Dawn comes via RCA on September 12th.
