Today, singer-songwriter and musician, Cris Cab, releases his new single “Turn Out the Light” featuring Latin superstar recording artist, J. Balvin and produced by Dre Harris, exclusively with The Fader. “Turn Out the Light” is the first official offering from Cris Cab’s forthcoming Pharrell Williams executive produced album, New Beginnings, which is set for release this winter. Over top of 80’s inspired musical sonics, and a string of influenced vocals, Cris sings about the searching and questions that today’s generation ask themselves about the future. You can stream “Turn Out the Light” here.
“These days, I believe my generation has a lot of questions and uncertainty about the future and life in general” says Cab. “This song was basically a conversation in my head looking for answers and a quest for unity”.
“Pharrell had invited me to the studio to meet J. Balvin, and I played him some records I was working on. J and I clicked quickly, and when he heard the rough version of Turn Out The Light, he immediately reacted to it, and was ready to lay a verse. Being from Cuban heritage, it makes me proud to have a verse on my record in Spanish by J.”
Cris upcoming album New Beginnings is set to explore all of the variations reggae music has had to offer the world. From 80’s UK pop, vintage Jamaican roots, Caribbean dancehall to Latin Reggaton. Cris effortlessly uses all of these styles with his own flavor and seamlessly incorporates them into a modern sound with a Universal message. The project holds songs made with heavy weight producers like Pharrell Williams, Jerry Wonder, and Dallas Austin, with many unexpected surprise features.
