Ironically enough, Emerson Brooks didn’t stick around after dropping off his reader-acclaimed cover of Rihanna‘s Stay back in February. Aside from a guest appearance on The Antiheroes’ Understand, the intervening months have passed without a peep from the T-Dot singer/songwriter. If you’ve been waiting with bated breath for new material, you can go ahead and, uh, unbate your breath; today, the singer/songwriter/producer makes his triumphant return with new EP single WDYTYA (Who Do You Think You Are). Here, Brooks and Alex Isaaks’ intricate, guitar-led boardwork backs indignant verses addressed to a woman who did the artist dirty and left him alone in the dark. This romantically-wounded jam is just one of many fresh, innovative cuts to be found on ThePurpleEP. Keep it locked for further details on the project, which has yet to be assigned a solid release date.
