Last year, Luke James surprised listeners in the Booth with Love Chile, a sensual cut which turned out to have absolutely nothing to do with red peppers. Encouraged by that record’s positive reception, the NARS/Def Jam singer/songwriter returned with another fresh song release that sounds like it could be about food, but isn’t. Despite sounding like a dessert you’d order at an avant-garde bistro, Strawberry Vapors is less concerned with molecular gastronomy than with the intoxicating effects of a certain woman on the artist’s psyche. Danja produces, backing the artist’s dreamy, falsetto-laced verses with a sultry, atmospheric synth arrangement. Released December 12, 2012, Whispers in the Dark is available now for free digital download. Fans should also keep it locked for the latest on the artist’s currently-unscheduled studio debut, Made to Love.
