Masego – Silver Tongue Devil

Today, Masego shares Silver Tongue Devil, the latest track off his upcoming concept EP, featuring “Jamaican Princess of Dancehall” (The Guardian) Shenseea and his signature saxophone licks. The song invites fans and newcomers into the mythical mind of the artist at a crossroad: What to do with such a silver-tongued devil, who may or may not be a former flame?

LISTEN TO SILVER TONGUE DEVIL

WATCH THE VISUALIZER HERE

On October 14, a week following this release, Masego will share his Lyric Video for the track featuring footage shot in Mexico by Loug Delcy.

Silver Tongue Devil arrives less than a month after Masego made his return with Passport. In both Japanese and English, Masego laments the monotony of quarantine on what VICE Music dubbs as one of the “Best Songs to Usher In Fall” and NPR Music calls “a bittersweet anti-pandemic sentiment made palatable with [Masego’s] smooth voice.”

The upcoming project is a tropical journey through every aspect of a relationship, from beginning to end, showing off a new and reflective side of the artist. At the moment when Masego’s whirlwind touring life has suddenly been forced to a halt, he’s chosen to take this time to look inward and explore what he finds, both topically and sonically. The result is a body of work that shows Masego evolving in real-time, an expansion both in terms of production choice and collaborative partners. It is Masego’s most ambitious, enjoyable effort to date and his most refreshing interpretation of traphousejazz yet.

The forthcoming EP is the official follow up to Lady Lady, Masego’s epic 2018 debut that firmly put the singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist on the map or, all over the map, to be precise: In the almost-two years since its release, Masego has toured the world, headlining sold out tours and starring on festival stages across every continent but Antartica. The album was no less of a success with listeners: “Tadow,” the lead single, has surpassed half a billion streams and been certified gold by the RIAA; that same song has been used in over two million video creates on TikTok; and the project cemented him as a name to watch in the burgeoning generation of like-minded black musicians, with features and collaborations across marquee projects from the likes of Kehlani, Dreamville, KAYTRANADA and more.
