Song of the Day: Reuben James & Tom Misch Tunnel Vision
British singer and virtuoso pianist Reuben James today releases the second single Tunnel Vision from his forthcoming mixtape. A collaboration with South London jazz-soul singer and guitarist Tom Misch, Native Dancer’s Frida Touray & British singer-songwriter Daley, Tunnel Vision is the follow up to summer jam BBQ Energy and offers up an infectious slice of hypnotic neo-soul.
Exploring a variety of sound worlds - with deep beats, catchy grooves and heavy jazz and soul influences at its core – James’ mixtape is due for release in early 2021 and, alongside Tom Misch, Frida Touray and Daley, will feature an impressive rollcall of additional collaborators includingHONNE, Adam Flowers and Keyon Harrold.
“Tunnel Vision is my latest offering featuring the hugely talented Daley and Frida Touray. Super chill, winter, cosy vibes - a love song about only having eyes for one person. Tom Misch blessed the song on guitar and Elliott Skinner on background vocals. I’m really proud of it”, said Reuben about the song.
Considered one of the most exciting artists to have emerged from the UK in recent years, James rose to notoriety co-writing songs for Sam Smith’s 4 million-selling album The Thrill of it All, and has since written for and performed with the likes of Tori Kelly, Little Mix, Disclosure, Col3trane and Liam Payne to name a few.
