Hear FRANCESCO YATES’ new song, “WHEN I FOUND YOU”
“The song ‘When I Found You’ is about someone special in your life who has your back and is able to pick you up when you’re at a low point. The lyrics reflect that initial feeling you get when you’ve found that special person.” – Francesco Yates
19-year-old Francesco Yates has unveiled ”When I’m With You” – the second track from his forthcoming debut album. The lyric video, which provides a number of visuals racing over a love story, can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/tzPDhPwWEc4. “When I’m With You” follows the release of Francesco’s current single, “Call,” produced by Robin Hannibal and written by Francesco Yates and Matt Morris. “Call” has already garnered some great attention since its release this summer. “Meet Francesco Yates, the big-haired big-souled R&B phenom whose first single you’ll be listening to all summer…” raved Buzzfeed. Futhermore, Justin Timberlake called the single “the Summer Jam of 2014” while Complex called the song “refreshing up-tempo, yet calming.”
The talented singer-songwriter’s musical influences range from classic rock legends such as Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin & Freddie Mercury of Queen to timeless soul powerhouses, Donny Hathaway & Stevie Wonder. On his debut album he has enlisted the help of heavy-hitting producers Pharrell Williams and Robin Hannibal of Rhye/Quadron (Kendrick Lamar, B.O.B.).
