Loyle Carner releases his first new music of 2020.

Teaming up with producer extraordinaire Madlib, Loyle Carner has emerged into this grim year during its final stages with a new single entitled Yesterday.

Completed by a video co-directed with his brother Ryan, the whole package sees Carner expanding the lyrical boundaries from the day-to-day personal tales which have made his name.

“It’s no secret Madlib is my musical hero,” Carner says. “I wrote this almost two years ago, but at first had trouble with clearing the sample and thought it would never see the light of day.”

“It’s really just about what it is to be black and white, in a world where you pretty much have to be one or the other.”

“It hurts the way I felt about my race back then, is the same way I feel now. Nothings changed since my last entry, nothings changed since the last century.”

“I hope that soon this song is nothing more than a reminder of a different time, and collectively we’re able to move forward to a time of more respect, acceptance and understanding.”
