Quickly rising singer Gallant is coming hot off a successful 2015 in which he joined Zhu on the Mind of a Genius label, released his breakout single “Weight In Gold,” and toured alongside Sufjan Stevens in addition to launching his new acoustic video series “In The Room.” Now Gallant has recently shared on social media that his debut album is finished, and we couldn’t be more excited. 

This LA based singer aims to reshape the R&B landscape with his piercing falsetto vocals, and he’s back flexing his rare voice with Skipping Stones, a two-track digital release out Friday, 2/5 on Red Bull Sound Select. He’s released the title track “Skipping Stones” featuring the alurring vocals of fellow R&B singer Jhene Aiko and was co-produced by Stint and Adrian Younge, a master sampler & hip hop producer who’s worked with Ghostface Killah, Jay Z, DJ Premier, and more. This new track blends laid back, organic guitar, bass, horns, and keyboard instrumentation with raw drums utilizing a crashing snare; setting the stage for Gallant’s soulful vocals to shine atop. The second track off this release this Friday is Gallant's "Borderline" collaboration with James Fauntleroy we previously covered.

The fruits of the production session are now available for all to hear as “Lighters Up” was released today on Flosstradamus debut HDYNATION RADIO album.

A big room build pushes the momentum towards a drop that’s filled with bass kicks, electro synths, and all the proper amounts of hype aesthetics one would expect on collaboration between the two acts. Listeners will find it rather difficult remaining calm while streaming this thunderous anthem below!
