Internet artist Mellow Fellow just did a surprise midnight drop, and it was a perfect late night tune for some wistful longing at 1 a.m., if that’s what you were doing. The song is named “cookie butter,” and is a collaboration with bedroom-pop artist, Ruru.
The song is a plea to a lover before saying goodbye, to maybe spare a thought or two their way. The duo croons, “Yet is it too much to ask for? / A little of your time / a little thought of mine when you’re out there.” Waves of fluid synth accompany some pretty sad lyrics, and Ruru’s vocals deliver the melody with a soft power. Nothing like a Mellow Fellow track for a little melancholy.
The artists reveal that “cookie butter” is their first collaboration. In the track’s SoundCloud post, Mellow Fellow published the lyrics along with the caption, “an old song, our first song; releasing now for the public’s ears.”
