sZa

TDE’s first lady returns with a woozy new track produced by Thundercat, Chris Calor, Cody, LoveDragon and Sounwave, seemingly featuring an obscure sample (astutely observed) from Welsh producer Ifan Dafydd’s ‘Treehouse’ – which we first gushed about back in 2011. ‘Sobriety’ finds SZA pouring her unfiltered heart out, colourfully swooning about past loves and strained relationships. Produced, arranged and performed beautifully by all involved the track is another exciting prospect from the St. Louis native. Hopefully we’ll get that full project soon.
