Today marks the release of artist and producer 5AM’s latest track, “Automatic” on 1865/Interscope Records. On the ethereal yet pop forward track the Atlanta-based rapper/singer shows off his eclectic and ever-growing sound – he showcases his buttery smooth voice that easily flutters between driving verses and a hypnotic hook. Of new music coming this year 5AM says “I’m really excited about this project and the reception. I can’t wait to hear all the feedback because we really took our time working on these records and they’re very special to me. They represent the space I was in during the recording process.”
Last summer 5AM teamed up with Grammy award nominated producer TM88 (Lil Uzi Vert, Travis Scott) for their surprise 9-track collaboration, 5:88. The project, which Fader described as “a slick but bouncy and melodic ode to the short-lived thrills and romantic possibilities of summer nights” garnered recognition from HotNewHipHop, The Source, Hypebeast and more. This summer 5AM will continue to share new music with his fans which includes, NBA superstar Kevin Durant who discovered the rising singer on a blog and showed love for his music via Instagram.
