UPDATE: “Not Really Here” is no longer available to stream.
In anticipation of his debut album, A City With No Seasons, Shawn Chrystopher plans to release a few new records that didn’t make the cut. In the case of this record, which he himself described as “one of the best songs I’ve ever done,” the emcee simply wanted everyone to hear the song as soon as possible. Without further ado, we present Not Really Here. Sampling Sam Sparro‘s Grammy-nominated dance hit, Black & Gold, Shawn dedicates his passionate verses to an unnamed love interest. Since this record is intended as a sneak peek of A City With No Seasons’ creative direction, expectations for the LP should be sky-high. Stay tuned to DJBooth.net for further details as they arise, as well as more newly-released material from this talented emcee.
