Leave some space on your playlists, folks. James Reid’s latest single is dropping this week.
Careless Music has recently announced James’ comeback track “Soda,” the first of several upcoming singles from the main man himself. Fresh out of a rocky 2020, “Soda” is the retaliation we’ve come to expect with its fizzy yet smooth groove. “Soda” is said to play in between the lines of soul and electro-funk, making it a jump-off point to something new—both for the listener and James.
“Despite the chaos and tragedy that was 2020, it really challenged me and forced me to evolve in more ways than just music,” James says in a press release. “So there’s been a silver lining. I made this song as a reflection of that perspective. Learning to ride the highs and the lows. The future is unknown, so all we can do is have enough self-awareness to make the most out of life’s surprises.”
“Soda” is set for release this Friday, Jan. 29 midnight. But don’t fret—it’s already available to pre-save on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and Tidal.
