PELL – ‘SKYFALL’ FT. AMBRÉ PERKINS, MALIK NINETY FIVE & ICON
“‘Skyfall’ was created with New Orleans in mind,” said PELL. “For me, it represents not forgetting your roots. It’s a big deal to me to be able to help show how diverse New Orleans artists are and these are definitely some of my favorite by far. Faux Delorean (the producers) Ambré, Malik and I were in the same studio session and Ambré started singing the hook and it just felt good. I sent the song to Icon later and when she sent it back my eyes watered it was so good.” ‘Skyfall’ is off of PELL’s anticipated 13 track album ‘Gravity’ (out now). The infection that is occurring in your listening heart is the rhythm that spreads around the world. PELL’s light and airy production of this single, drapes around the minds of the public, never forgetting where we all came from, but also never being stuck by it.
