Harrison is back with a pair of new singles. The Toronto-based producer and musician shared his first releases of the new year in "Float" with Kadjha Bonet and "A View from the Sky." 

Bonet's ethereal vocals are appropriate for a song titled "Float." The Los Angeles-based R&B singer, who has  collaborated with the likes of Childish Gambino and Anderson .Paak, glides effortlessly over Harrison's bass and drums-driven production. 

The purely instrumental "A View from the Sky" allows Harrison to tap into his jazz roots. The track is highlighted by a bouncy piano and a fast-paced drum beat which reflect a special memory for the artist. 

"This piece means a lot to me," said Harrison. "I just started taking Zoloft after a pretty bad stint of depression and it just started to kick in that day. I wanted to convey that feeling of carefreeness even if it was just for a moment. I'll be proud of this joint forever." 

The singles follow Harrison's November collaboration with Toronto rapper DijahSB's "Khadijah."

Harrison said in a press release that the singles preview a full-length album to be released this year, which will be his first since the 2018 JUNO-nominated Apricity.
