Recently, Francesco Yates received a fateful Call from the offices of Atlantic Records. Now, after a detour to lay down a guitar track on Pharrell‘s G I R L LP, the 17-year-old Toronto native’s landed on our pages with a debut single. Here, Robin Hannibal and Salva‘s airy, upbeat pop boardwork sets the mood as Yates addresses falsetto-laced lines to a woman in his life. Just one listen will convince you that Yates is a star-in-the-making. Like what you’re hearing? Then stay tuned; the artist has yet to reveal details on a debut album, but we’ll keep you posted on his plans as further information surfaces.
