Yellow Shoots Releases New Single

Following suit of a sound that FADER describes as "full of misty grays and blues," Brooklyn by way of Philadephia producer, vocalist, and instrumentalist Yellow Shoots is now unveiling another cut of his upcoming EP- 'Stormy Weather.' Titled "Heaven," Yellow Shoots, real name Greg Matthews, teams up with legendary Brooklyn rapper Skyzoo for a hypnotizing melodic commentary on humanity.

Originally composed for Nate Parker's film Birth Of A Nation, "Heaven" features a mix of organic and electronic instrumentation including guitar strums, synth, and vocals from Matthews. Additionally, Skyzoo emboldens the track with his own set of vocal stylings for an original rap verse. The lyrical inspiration behind the track is drawn from the idea of a lack of empathy for others and the "squabbling of humanity." If "Heaven" has caught your ear, be sure to stay tuned for the remainder of Yellow Shoots' 'Stormy Weather' EP dropping in March.

Prior to this project, you may be familiar with Matthew's due to his stints as guitarist for GoGo Morrow and Ryan Toby of “City High." His "Heaven" counterpart, Skyzoo, has also built a renowned reputation for himself within the hip-hop genre thanks to critically acclaimed collaborations with artists including Jill Scott, Dr. Dre, Spike Lee, John Legend, Tyrese, Talib Kweli, Jadakiss, and many more, as well as a number of notable solo albums as well.
