Cautious Clay releases debut single, “Reasons” from forthcoming EP
2018 has seen Cautious Clay rise to new heights with a feature on HBO’s Insecure Season 3 Soundtrack, a Tiny Desk on NPR, performances at TIDAL X BROOKLYN and The Soul Train Awards on BET, sold-out headline shows, collaborations with notable artists such as John Mayer, as well as attention from VIBE, The New York Times, Pitchfork and more. Cautious is rounding out the year with new single “REASONS,” co-written with Hudson Mohawk and Tobias Jesso Jr., and produced by Hudson Mohawk and Cautious Clay.
“REASONS” is the first song from an upcoming EP which will be released early next year and is a sonic shift for Cautious, with a hard-hitting soundscape that still manages to compliment his voice and accent his lyrics. The angular and uplifting production makes for a supremely creative song that lyrically examines the interwoven nature of pleasure and purpose how those notions can relate to the idea of happiness. “Drama in my life on purpose, cuz I don’t need to have purpose…” calls to question the need for having a ‘reason’ in order to do something and how the experience itself can be the reward.
