Matell wants you to lend a hand on his new single Fragile (Help Someone) — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“Fragile is my We Are the World anthem,” the Colorado R&B singer-songwriter and producer says. “Fragile is a powerful word! The lyrics are emotive and roll off your tongue and into your heart.” Not back for a song that he says he produced on a cellphone — “and from my car. Because my computer isn’t working. The creative process still goes on regardless of your surroundings.”
And how. Matell shines with a mixture of style and sensitivity on this standout cut. Setting his passionate lyrics and soulful vocal atop a meditative, minimalist and moody track built around a ringing piano, a whistling flute, cymbal washes and finger snaps, Matell makes a bold statement about the importance of humanity, empathy and connection in these times of violence, division and quarantine.
Matell has been heralded for previous releases like I Apologize 2U & U2, Quickly, Low Expectations, I Said I’m Gonna Go, Oops, Oops Upside Your Head and My Conversations With God.
