SON LITTLE Premieres “The River”

SON LITTLE Premieres "The River"

Modernest r&b auteur Son Little returns with a  new track entitled “The River.”  The song delivers a seductive and ominous reconstruction of American blues infused with elements of hip-hop and raw guitar rock. Little (as Aaron Livingston) previously collaborated with The Roots and RJD2. Today, he premieres a video for his track “The River”

The video accompaniment for “The River” brims with tension, Little crooning out the song in a gritty bar amidst subtle hints of heartbreak, jealousy and potential violence.

The original version of the song infectiously recalls “Lets Go Crazy” era Prince, gritty blues/ gospel and bedroom indie pop in what may be his finest track yet. With his “River Styx” remix, he channels “Band Of Gypsies” Hendrix with a nod to hip-hop minimalism, the immensely funky “Amazon River” remix delivering pure early ‘70s Blaxploitation bliss complete with Curtis Mayfield strings and irresistible groove.
