Los Angeles, CA | September 22, 2023 – Visionary alternative soul artist, songwriter, and producer Jesse Boykins III is set to captivate the music world once again with his new single “Go With The Feeling,” the latest offering from his anticipated upcoming album ‘New Growth.’
Collaborating with fellow GRAMMY-nominated songwriter/producer Wynne Bennet (Janelle Monae, HAIM, Talya Parx, Tank and the Bangas) and NAZ (KYLE, Smino, J.Cole), Boykins yet again delivers an unforgettable sonic experience. “Go With The Feeling” is a hypnotic song that transports listeners into a world of dancehall, rhythmic enchantment and soulful exploration. According to Boykins, it is about “the laws of attraction and how it is in our nature to want to have what is familiar and comfortable but still want to feel spontaneous and desired.”
Reflecting on the creative process behind “Go With The Feeling,” Jesse Boykins III shares, “When Wynne and I started the sonic direction, it felt like a journey and was very free-flowing (I was on shrooms). Once we felt the rhythms and soundscapes become one, it became apparent to me that it’s a blend of three things – an indie approach to recording, dancehall and basement influences, and this refreshing arrangement – that brings it all together.”
This latest sonic offering follows the success of Boykins’ seductive previous single, “Honestly I’m A Threat,” which tantalized fans and garnered support from VIBE, Global Grind, This Is R&B, and You Know I Got Soul, among others. With a handful of new singles out for the world to enjoy, each new release signifies a special moment of Jesse Boykins III journey of self-improvement through musical exploration, which will culminate in his upcoming album ‘New Growth’.
As the release date for ‘New Growth’ approaches, fans and music enthusiasts can look forward to a fresh and captivating musical experience that promises to leave a lasting impression. Stay tuned for more updates on Jesse Boykins III journey of artistic growth and the release of his awaited new album on October 20th.
