Tony Williams f/ Malik Yusef & JoiStaRR – “Rise And Shine” I New Music

G.O.O.D Music affiliate and soul singer Tony Williams has released the first single, “Rise And Shine”, from his forthcoming LP release, The King Or The Fool, a re-release of his 2012 effort which contains new and unreleased music which has been remixed and re-mastered.

The track opens with a one and a half minute acapella verse by spoken-word artist and poet Malik Yusef who expounds his rhymes over a slow swell of twinkling organ sounds and keyboards. Williams himself then enters the frame with an uplifting Stevie Wonder-style vocal that flows over an equally-upbeat gospel influenced backing before JoiStaRR lends her own refrain to the build-up of the chorus. “Rise And Shine” is an elevating and groove-filled summer anthem perfect for those sun-soaked laid-back days, take a listen below:
