Today, GRAMMY® Award-nominated, critically acclaimed singer and songwriter Gallant unveils a new single entitled “Sleep On It.” LISTEN HERE via Mind of a Genius/Warner Records.
Sonically channeling turn-of-the-century R&B, the track integrates lush acoustic guitar, a thick beat, and an enticing falsetto. Gallant goes from intimate verses into a captivating chant upheld by his smooth signature sound and a burning question, “Why don’t we sleep on it?”
“The song is about putting aside your pride and reconciling, after butting heads in a relationship. It’s about reconciliation,” Gallant explains.
The single bridges eras of R&B as a perfect throwback blend combined with a future-facing sound. It also sets the stage for the arrival of his second full-length and one of the year’s most anticipated R&B offerings, Sweet Insomnia—due out in the autumn.
What’s more, Gallant earned a “Video for Good” nomination at this year’s MTV VMAs for “Runaway Train” with Jamie N Commons and Skylar Grey. The award show will air on Monday, August 26th.
A fan of the hit cartoon series, Gallant was honored to join Chance the Rapper, Estelle, James Fauntleroy and more as a musical contributor to Steven Universe The Movie—the musical version of the Cartoon Network show due in autumn. Plus, in September, Gallant joins critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Sabrina Claudio as direct support on her US Truth Is Tour.
