Rina Sawayama teams up with Shamir on ‘Tunnel Vision’

Her new mini-album ‘RINA’ is coming on Friday.

London-based Rina Sawayama is dropping her mini-album ‘RINA’ on Friday (27th October) but before that she’s dropped a new collaboration – with none other than Shamir!

‘Tunnel Vision’ is a shimmering R&B track filled with little flourishes and details that also blends the vocal talents of the two. Shamir said of ‘Tunnel Vision’: “I’m so happy to have been asked to be apart of Rina’s Tunnel Vision! The themes in the lyrical content deal with a generational problem that’s rarely talked about.

“I know I personally have fallen victim to using technology to mask anxiety, it seems to be a new social nuisance i hope we’ll soon get a handle on, but to start we have Tunnel Vision.” Rina added: “We wanted to pay homage to 90/00’s duets like Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo, Beyoncé and Luther Vandross… I tried to get across a sense of closeness that’s so often lost when you collaborate on music online”.
