With Love + War just over a week away from dropping on September 11th, Kwabs — who I introduced back in July — has decided to provide us with even more reassuring glimpses his anticipated debut LP!

This week, the London-based crooner has gone back to where it all started by unleashing “Layback” – “One of the first songs I ever wrote,” he told The Line of Best Fit – as the album’s latest grat track. While the original was much more similar to a raw demo, the new version produced by long-time Jessie Ware collaborator and former member of The Invisibles Dave Okumu offers a rhythmic ambient vibe that beautifully corresponds to Kwabs‘ powerful, soulful vocals. Watch for Love + War, this one is a major Best Of ’15 contender!
