Alexander Nate is an R&B/Soul singer-songwriter from Virginia. Not too long ago, he released “Red Canary”, a nostalgic soul tune from his new EP bearing the same name.

Alexander Nate – “Red Canary”

“Two weeks into February, I saw you in that red canary and you was sitting down with a couple of friends talking about your ex and how you’re happy you’re single again. So, I wanna know if I can get your name?” – lyrics

‘Red Canary’ tells a bittersweet tale of a guy who encounters a woman he desires. She just got out of a romantic relationship, therefore, he gives her his phone number, wishing she would call him.

As time goes by, and years come and go, he still thinks about her being in that red canary. But that image vanishes when he finds out she’s about to walk down the aisle with another man. He’s sad but still happy that she’s happy. If he could tell her one last thing, he would say, “I hope he makes you happy. But if he lets you down, I’ll be back around. ‘Cause you’re the one I want.”    

‘Red Canary’ contains a relatable storyline, raspy-toned soul vocals, and a magnetic instrumentation flavored with hip-hop and urban soul elements.
