I was just browsing Stereofox posts about Loyle Carner and we are all pretty much obsessed with him, which is really not surprising. I really don't think this artist has ever made a bad song.

For the new track "Ottolenghi" he teamed up with sweet-voiced Jordan Rakei and this proved to be the one of the smoothest collaborations I've heard in quite some time. It's been a while since we heard something new from Carner and this makes me hopeful that more new material is coming soon. The new track turned out to be moody and lyrical, full of beautiful verses and jazzy vibes here and there. The video is also really witty and a little bit surreal, so definitely check it out.

Apparently, the song is a tribute to Yotam Ottolenghi, a well-known British chef, which I'm pretty sure also has something to do with the fact that Carner runs his own cooking school for kids with ADHD. My heart!
