A couple of weeks ago our beloved Ta-ku announced his new album with an insane list of guest artists (see this tweet) - Songs To Come Home To is expected on Aug 25th.

The first taste off it is, unsurprisingly, an absolute dream team - Xavier Omär, DAISY WORLD & ROMderful join the Australian producer/singer for "SMILE". An absolutely wonderful modern r&b gem with an awesome groove, warm keys, signature for the ROMderful production & beautiful vocals from Xavier, DAISY & Ta-ku.

The official music video is absolutely stellar, directed by Ta-ku himself. Blending real-life shots the AI app runway to create trippy cuts:

BTW, "SMILE" entered our friends Global Soul's Top 20 Chart at #12 this week - they're a UK tastemaker which you should definitely follow if you want to be in tune with what's going on in the r&b/soul world. Check the full show below:
