Loyle Carner has dropped his first new music of 2020

Loyle Carner has dropped his first new music of 2020.

'Yesterday' has been in the works for a while, Loyle explains, and includes a sample from producer Madlib.

“It’s no secret Madlib is my musical hero. I wrote this almost 2 years ago, but at first, had trouble with clearing the sample and thought it would never see the light of day.

"It’s really just about what it is to be black and white, in a world where you pretty much have to be one or the other.

"It hurts the way I felt about my race back then, is the same way I feel now. Nothings changed since my last entry; nothing's changed since the last century.

"I hope that soon this song is nothing more than a reminder of a different time, and collectively we’re able to move forward to a time of more respect, acceptance and understanding."

The video for ‘Yesterday’ has been directed by Loyle and his brother Ryan (The Coyle-Larner Brothers), give it a watch below.
