On November 5th, contemporary music magazine The FADER premiered Kenneth Whalum’s “Ghost Town,” and brought to light his oft under-acknowledged presence in the world of hip-hop. In that community, Whalum is more commonly known for his work playing saxophone, singing backup, and composing for hip-hop giants like Jay-Z, D’Angelo, and Maxwell, but his forthcoming album Through Hell & High Water brings him to the spotlight. “Ghost Town,” which Zara Golden describes as “a meandering and wistful falling in and out of love song,” gives audiences a taste of what they have to look forward to from the album, which is slated to be released this winter. Listen to the track below and read the feature over at The Fader.
