New music from Ta-Ku is always a good thing. Check out the story behind “American Girl” below.
“American Girl started as a joke when I was watching old Kobe Bryant highlights and Estelle’s ”American Boy” was the soundtrack. I really wanted to make a stripped back #emotional version that would play on its really great melodic structure. I reached out to my lovely friend @Wafia to sing a duet with me & mustered enough courage to jump on the first verse. I’m very proud of this song. I hope you enjoy it”.
I’ve been playing this one all day. I just love how you can always recognize where Sango puts his touches on a track. He’s quickly become one of my top 3 favorite producers. The last 45 seconds of “Love Again” are perfect. Hopefully I can write something over that little bit soon. Info on how to purchase below. I’ll upload a loop I made of that ending soon.
