Tom Misch the internet born producer phenom releases new single "It Runs Through Me" featuring De La Soul ahead of the release of Tom Misch's much anticipated and upcoming debut album.
"It Runs Through Me" opens with loose hi hats that give way to a guitar line that shimmers like an early morning summer glow the same way, "the music gives me sun when winter starts." Then comes Tom's soft voice delineating the way music runs through him and Tom, we too, "love the way it flows / love the way it grows."
The prescient way Tom Misch lays out this track from start to finish is the definition of a vibe one could only call smooth. Any week a new Misch single blesses us we are having a collective smooth semana.
De La Soul help Tom round out the depth of some hooks and verses throughout showcasing the mixing prowess of Misch and his ability to interweave vocal pads together. An already dynamic and stimulating song about music is capped with a verse that is nothing short of vivacious in its bottling of the vibe.
"I wear notes like coats, blues like dues / Warm from the rhythm, soul that glues / The bounce through my bones, jazz in my spine / The hop is my home, rap is my grind."
The new album, Geography, from Tom Misch is slated to be released on April 6th which can be pre-ordered here. The album will be inclusive of this single featuring De La Soul as well as the two previously released singles "Water Baby" feat. Loyle Carner and Movie.
Released along with the single "It Runs Through Me" is the official tracklist which you can view below. I would be remiss if I didn't say that the most notable thing about the tracklist, beyond it not being 100 tracks (a boy can dream and desire can't he?), is that there are the two previously unknown features of GoldLink and Poppy Ajudha.
Tom Misch will be at these upcoming UK shows:
March 5 Leeds University Stylus
March 6 Bristol 02 Academy
March 8 London Roundhouse
March 11 Birmingham O2 Institute
