In spite of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, NPR has done a phenomenal job of landing A-list talent for their remote Tiny Desk concerts. Stars like Young Thug, Rick Ross, Vince Staples, 2 Chainz, Jack Harlow and Billie Eilish have made appearances recently. However, only one artist, Justin Bieber, has been able to garner more eyeballs to their Tiny Desk performances than visionary Spanish act C. Tangana. In fact, his performance was so well done that it played a part in inspiring Camila Cabello’s next album.
Just a few months after delivering an incredible Tiny Desk performance and well-received sophomore album called El Madrileño, the 31-year-old superstar is back with a new track called “Yate.” With 70s production and a seaside artwork, C. Tangana is giving fans worldwide an opportunity to take a 3:26 second vacation with him and his friends.
“While on vacation and staring at the turquoise sea, I started thinking of a trip through the Mediterranean: the South of France, Italy, Corsica,” he said about his new release.
“What would yacht music made by El Madrileño sound like? I delved into Spanish music from the 70s that incorporated soulful sophisticated arrangements. I wanted to make a joyful song that got people in a positive mood after such a rough year.”
