Trailblazing Nigerian singer-songwriter Tim Lyre presents melancholic and yearnful new afrobeats single ‘Confess’, arguably his most accomplished work to date.
A sultry saxophone solo, layered over sombre electronic pads, usher you into the turmoil of Tim’s mind as he contemplates what he has to confess, somewhat like the intro before an icon walks onto the stage for a life-changing performance.
Produced by Mytee Menko, ‘Confess’ is the first single off the flourishing multi-instrumentalist, artist, and producer’s forthcoming EP, ‘Masta’, set to be released in early 2023, an afrobeats masterpiece showcasing his versatility and top-tier wordplay.
‘Confess’ closely follows the success of ‘Feel Something’, a fan-favorite on Show Dem Camp’s Palm Wine Music Vol. 3, and the deluxe version of his critically acclaimed debut album Worry < which garnered over 3m streams and support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 1Xtra, Cool FM, Bandcamp (Album of the Week), Notion Magazine, Okay Africa, Breakroom Africa, Pan African Music, Bounce Radio, iMullar and Worldwide FM.
Built on a mid-tempo, laid-back beat and backed by heavy saxophone chords, the track sees Tim bare his intentions and confront reality with candor, while eking out head-bopping melodies accompanied by deep-cutting lyrics. “Confess is a song about honesty. The key is to be real with yourself and others.” – Tim Lyre
