RWD recently caught up with rising star of the moment Raury for a yet-to-be-released interview feature; in the meantime, they have released an except from that, which sees the Atlanta artist breaking down how it was working with SBTRKT on his albumWonder Where We Land (out now):
We were in New York and we had like a sit down with him, we had a really long conversation just getting to know each other. Through the conversation I realised how much alike SBTRKT and I were…SBTRKT is a real cool guy, I have a lot of respect for him. Especially how he looks at his career and how he handles it: having the mask and just finding a way to remain somewhat of a normal person while at the same time being this star producer and artist. I just love how he does that.
He started playing me music and the songs that are on the project were recorded that night…‘Higher’ is very rap-esque and I feel like that can turn a bunch of heads in another way, not in the ‘God’s Whisper’ way, not in the way that ‘Cigarette Song’ would, but it will get the attention of another bunch of fans because they’re very well-written verses about what I’m going through on the come up. So I can’t wait to see how the fans react to that song.
