Eric Reid (A Prince) dropped the first single from his new upcoming self titled debut EP out October 21, 2016.
I was thinking of sharing his second single Astronauts but this will do fine.

“‘I Need You Closer’ is built around a Roland TR-808 drum machine basic toe tapping beat. The sound originally sounded fake and lame so I recorded it to tape and then mic’ed the tape deck and recorded it back into the song and now it sounds fake and cheesy, but in a good way.
This song was originally going to be called Hedgehogs Dillema which from Wikipedia: is a metaphor about the challenges of human intimacy. It describes a situation in which a group of hedgehogs all seek to become close to one another in order to share heat during cold weather.
However, they cannot avoid hurting one another with their sharp spines. Though they all share the intention of a close reciprocal relationship, this may not occur, for reasons they cannot avoid. I changed the name because I think Hedgehogs Dillema sounds like the name of a song nobody would really want to listen to. Anyway, it sums up most of my relationships. But that is something I’ll figure it out eventually…”
