New Track: Eric Lau & Oddisee – “What I’d Rather” (Preview)


Unfair is this preview for this new Eric Lau and Oddisee track, “What I’d Rather.” About twelve seconds in, we already knew that we needed to have it all. The mellow tune eases you in with its muffled piano and Oddisee’s effortless flow that caresses and slaps you in the breath – how rude/awesome.

“What I’d Rather” will be available on April 21!

Just about a couple weeks ago, we highlighted a phenomenal UK vocalist who will soon be releasing her debut album in the US. And it appears as though yesterday Rebecca Ferguson leaked a new track along with a video, too!
