Genre-defying King Hawkins just shared his single "Gaslight". The song is the first release from this rising timeless sounding soul singer/songwriter.
With "Gaslight" King Hawkins writes a song all about second guessing someone and using words to convince others they are wrong. Whether this is intentional or not, "Gaslight" details that important narrative of how dangerous this pattern can be. Lyrics including, "You entered my brain / you played with it / then left it out in the rain / I don’t feel safe / and that’s why I feel / my reality isn’t real," show just how painful and confusing being on the receiving end of gaslighting can be. Sonically, the track features King Hawkins' unique vocal prowess singing seductive melodies over colorful soundscapes. Elements of soul, rock and pop all meld together for an eccentric and thrilling listen.
King Hawkins is a mysterious artist who has collaborated with producer Cat Lewis for his debut musical project. The single "Gaslight" is off of his upcoming album due in 2024. Take a listen to the new track now and remember to not put words in people's mouth.
