TYSON Links With Albertina On ‘Don’t Let Me Go’

It's about falling deeply for someone...

TYSON has shared new single ‘Don’t Let Me Go’.

The electronic multi-hyphenate struck gold with 2020’s ‘Moonlight Mixtape’, an excellent fusion of club tropes and songwriting tinged with emotion. Recently returning with Coby Sey collab ‘Can’t Be Unstuck’, the LMP Recordings co-founder has now opened out a fresh chapter in her work.

New single ‘Don’t Let Me Go’ is touched by euphoria, the driving, surging electronics augmented by a guest turn from Albertina. R&B meets club-focussed digitalism, the single taps into the first rush of passion that comes with truly falling for someone.

TYSON comments…

The song is about being lost in that first madness you feel when you get with someone. The physicality and emotions totally take you over and you’re drunk, totally consumed by it. We laughed at how ridiculous it can sometimes be. We both love playing around with the dynamic between being overly dramatic and completely unserious, so we decided to write a rnb song with 1000 vocal layers and runs, and endless drama. I love it. Working with Albertina is so free and inspiring. We created a story and brought it to life.”

Albertina adds: “Tyson and I wrote this rnb song about drowning in romance and lust and the desire of touch and holding on. We played around the idea of manipulation and control that evolves in intimate relationships. At the time I had a huge crush on this super hot guy and I was thinking about him. We love humour and thought how dramatic lust can sometimes be that you simply don’t want to let go.”
