L.A.-based singer/songwriter/producer Leven Kali has released three new songs, “Mine,” “Thursday,” and “Too High” featuring fellow West Coast artists Buddy and Na’Kel. The tracks, written and co-produced by Leven himself, showcase his ability to display modern romance as a colorful, funk-inspired, and dreamy entity. Leven is due to release his debut full length project in the spring of 2019 on Palm Studios/ Interscope Records. A lyric video for “Thursday” is also out today, directed by Palm Studios.
The new tracks come as a follow up to Leven’s October double-single pack, NunWrong With a Lil’ Good Lovin’, which Billboard said “encompass lush, mellow R&B vibes that resemble Anderson Paak’s surreal sounds and the pop elements of Bruno Mars.” This fall, Leven joined Snoh Aalegra on the west coast leg of her tour.
Leven dropped his acclaimed single “Do U Wrong” ft. Syd back in January. Produced by Zack Sekoff (Vince Staples, Thundercat), the track features a writing contribution from Swedish singer/songwriter Snoh Aalegra. In its glowing review of “Do U Wrong,” Pitchfork stated that Leven “is out to write the next episode of California hip-hop: buttery neo-soul vocalism growling electric guitar, and G-funk thumo.” Leven is scheduled to release his full-length project in 2019.
