Langa Mavuso has dropped a new single ‘Panther’ featuring Yanga Chief as he continues to tease his highly anticipated self-titled debut album titled LANGA.
Crafted with production duo Noble, who recently collaborated with Beyoncé on The Lion King: The Gift, ‘Panther’ is a smooth and soulful offering with lush R&B sensibilities and expansive soundscapes that will transport listeners on a late summer evening ride.
The infectious slow jam sees Langa pour his heart out about searching for healing in all the wrong places, while highlighting his glorious vocals and exquisite falsetto tones, as well as his penchant for captivating storytelling and vivid songwriting.
The single was licensed for the 2019 adidas Home of Classics commercial.
Speaking about the inspiration behind his new single ‘Panther’, Langa says: “The song was inspired by a tumultuous time in my life where I had surrounded myself with many distractions to try and get over the pain and heartbreak of a difficult breakup. It captures how exhausting it became to pretend that things were alright with me after this relationship ended. It talks about the many distractions we use to run away from our emotions, whether it’s flashy cars and bottles of champagne to heal the pain, or seeking light in dark places”.
The single will part of his much-awaited album dropping on September 25th, and will feature lead singles Love Lost, Intliziyo and Mvula.
