Written by James Vickery and Kenny Beats, and produced by Kenny Beats, the new single “Tear It Apart” is so warm, catchy, and addictive that repeated listens are unavoidable. Available now via TH3RD BRAIN Records, the song is yet another example why London’s James Vickery continues to amass praise for his strong voice and unique R&B style.

The track, which originally debuted on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show, follows “Pressure,” and is the second single lifted from a new EP set for an early 2020 release. Soul, pop. hip-hop and electronic elements can all be found on the new EP; going to be a solid listen.

Speaking of the song, Vickery commented, “I wrote ‘Tear it Apart’ with Kenny Beats in our first ever session. It was a song I didn’t know I needed until I made it with him. Kenny asked me, ‘what’s on your mind?’ and honestly I didn’t know the answer. But by following his famous philosophy, D.O.T.S (don’t overthink shit), I was able to tap into a time when I was at my lowest and remember the only thing holding me together was one person. I owe that person everything. I can’t wait for everybody to hear this song that means the world to me.”
