Ghanaian Crooner Kwabs' 'Spirit Fade' + James Blake Cover

Watch Ghanaian crooner Kwabs cover James Blake's "The Wilhem Scream" and stream his hypnotizing new single.


Ghanaian-born Londoner Kwabs croons in a hypnotizing and dexterously-controlled baritone in the haunting  "Spirit Fade." The newcomer's single is an immediate standout, featuring foreboding, dark synthesizer layers and a grappling acoustic-guitar sample. Stream "Spirit Fade" and watch Kwabs cover fellow London resident James Blake's "The Wilhem Scream" below. For more from Kwabs, look back to when we called him one of the top British acts to watch in 2013.
