Stream: “Seventy” – Wayne Snow




If you mean it you will find what you’ve waiting for a long time…

Some songs hit home hard and fast, immediately resonating in our bones within, whereas others take time to slowly burn their way into our ears, minds, and hearts; somehow, Wayne Snow’s recent single accomplishes both the short and the long game, overwhelming the senses upon impact while leaving listeners stunned and hungry for more. As cinematic and smoldering as it is utterly seductive, the up-and-coming artist’s sultry “Seventy” burns bright with passion and spirited fortitude.

Seventy - Wayne Snow
Seventy – Wayne Snow
In the middle there is love
But far away the desire that
burn inside of you like fire

If you open up your heart
you will see
If you mean it
you will find what
you’ve waiting for a long time

Released April 22, 2021 via Roche Musique (FKJ, Darius, Kartell), “Seventy” arrived earlier this spring as Wayne Snow’s first release of 2021, and the lead single off his forthcoming sophomore album Figurine (out September 24, 2021). A Nigerian-born, Paris-raised, and now Berlin-based artist, Wayne Snow has made a name for himself in recent years with alluring, genre-blending left-of-center explosions of colorful sound. His music is a mesh of future jazz and neo-soul, filled with electronic flourishes and timeless R&B elements that make every Wayne Snow moment familiar, yet fresh at the same time.

While a majority of his earlier work – including 2014’s debut EP Red Runner, and 2017’s debut album Freedom TV – consisted of instrumental music or employed guest vocalists, Snow has found his voice on this latest material – and his first two singles of the year, “Seventy” and the more recent release “Nina,” come alive with glistening, golden vocals that soothe and soar alongside mesmerizing instrumental accompaniment.

Soulful and fragile all at once, the spellbinding five-and-a-half minute “Seventy” finds an invigorated Wayne Snow ready to pour his soul into sound.

The expansive enchantment gently builds, with watery guitars and tender percussion guiding Snow’s soul-stirring voice onward and upward. Simultaneously hushed and completely enveloping, “Seventy” invites its audience to close our eyes and rest; to dwell in its vast pools of slow-burning neo-soul, and let Snow’s repeated mantra make its way from our ears to our hearts: “If you mean it you will find what you’ve waiting for a long time…”

As the first song off his forthcoming album, Snow holds “Seventy” in high regard. “‘Seventy’ is a song about perseverance, about overcoming life’s obstacles without letting go,” he tells Atwood Magazine. “I imagined a seventy day countdown to motivate myself to bounce back after a tough year, when I felt everything was slipping out of my hands.”

Figurine - Wayne Snow
Figurine – Wayne Snow
As you’re working by the river
with no answers to your questions
If you open up your heart you will see
If you open up your heart you’ll be free
If you mean it you will find what
you’ve waiting for a long time…

Intense yet soft, “Seventy” is an altogether radiant reintroduction to Wayne Snow.

Whether you look to this song for its messages of strength and resilience, or for its hypnotic escapist elements, Snow’s first song of 2021 is a resounding, resonant triumph. Get lost in the indulgent waves of this irresistible track, and stay tuned for more to come from Figurine as Snow steadily leads up to his second album’s September release!

Seventy days left to go
Got no time to waste
Seventy days left to go
We got no time to waste
Got no time to waste
If you mean it you will find what
you’ve waiting for a long time…
