Louis Futon has had an incredible year and shows no signs of slowing down. Today he’s blessed us with an exciting new single “Royal Blood” featuring the vocals of Keiynan Lonsdale that we have the pleasure of premiering.
Louis has kept the content coming with his frequent beat challenges that has him flipping fan-picked songs with step-by-step videos and just recently linked up with none other than GRiZ to flip Tyler, The Creator’s “See You Again.” While these beat flips are amazing, it’s even better to have a brand new original track from the versatile producer. “Royal Blood” brings actor and vocalist Keiynan Lonsdale’s airy vocals that you may recognize from Kasbo’s recent track “Lay It On Me” that introduced us to the talented artist’s vocal abilities.
Louis Futon is always a master at blending his electronic production with live instrumentation in a effortless delivery, and “Royal Blood” continues this trend. The song kicks off with lush keys and the vocals leading up to the drop bring together simple, swirling synths and punching drums making for a catchy tune you won’t be getting out of your head for a while. Like much of Louis’ work, the song builds throughout with slick horns stealing the show on the second half of the track.
The artist is also currently on the road this fall where he is supporting Troyboi, ODESZA and Louis The Child on their tours across North America. He has also recently announced that he has a special headline show in Denver, Colorado at The Gothic that TSIS is happy to be presenting on Nov. 3. Grab tickets to that here. Enjoy!
