London Alt-R&B artist Rasharn Powell has released his brand new single Smithereens.

Following his recent single Joyride, Smithereens is in collaboration with AB001, the artist moniker for producer Alessandro Buccellati.The song is enriched with melodies, based around hurt, heartbreak and freedom, demonstrating a knowledge only someone who’s lived it can express. It’s R&B textures, funk grooves and soulful vocals embody elegance whilst creating the DNA for a summer jam.

When speaking about his inspiration for Smithereens, Rasharn said; “A coming-of-age track, something I’d probably play after watching Mid90’s or Blue is the Warmest Colour. “Smithereens” whisks me into my past to remind me of who I’ve become, a journey through trials and tribulations… Summers of biking everywhere with my friends from dawn till dusk, the song is a segment of my life’s soundtrack.”
