James Vickery Links With Kenny Beats For New Bumper ‘Tear It Apart’

It's an irresistible slice of future-facing R&B...

Rising R&B force James Vickery has shared his superb new single 'Tear It Apart'.

The songwriter's new EP is incoming, with recent single 'Pressure' placing his irresistible voice against producer SG Lewis.

New single 'Tear It Apart' finds the vocalist working with Stateside heavy-hitter Kenny Beats, moving into another aspect of the R&B spectrum.

A deliciously soulful workout, the bubbling electronics pierce through the songwriting to expose fresh shards of light.

Expertly done, it's another sign of James Vickery's rise, spearheading a fresh wave of British R&B talent.

He comments:

"I wrote 'Tear It Apart' with Kenny Beats in our first ever session. It was a song I didn't know I needed until I made it with him."

"Kenny asked me, 'what's on your mind?' and honestly I didn't know the answer. But by following his famous philosophy, D.O.T.S (don't overthink shit), I was able to tap into a time when I was at my lowest and remember the only thing holding me together was one person. I owe that person everything."

"I can't wait for everybody to hear this song that means the world to me."

Tune in now.

James Vickery is set to make his US debut shortly before Christmas – catch him in LA on December 17th, and New York on December 19th.
