The Range releasing ‘Potential’ (listen), playing two NYC shows this weekend & other dates
The Range (aka producer James Hinton) will release his new album, Potential, this Friday (3/25) via Domino. The new single from the LP is "Copper Wire" which features UK rapper Kruddy Zak. Says Hinton:
I think a lot of my favorite lyrics on Potential allude to coming to terms with a difficult time in your life - that moment of acceptance when you finally allow yourself to drop your guard and admit you’ve been hit with something hard. Zak's verse has a piece in it that states '09 was emotional / it's a memory / I wish that everything was still the same' and that hit me particularly deeply as that was the year I lost my mom. Writing this song was the first time I ever talked about that moment in my music, and I think it was an important step in dealing with how I was feeling to finally get some words about it down on paper.
Stream "Copper Wire," as well as previous single "Florida" and the video for "Four Five," below.
