Allen Stone Releases New Single, “Taste Of You”, Featuring Jamie Lidell

first_imgToday, R&B/soul singer Allen Stone dropped his latest single (and third of 2018), “Taste Of You”, an upbeat soul track featuring Jamie Lidell. Stone and Lidell are no strangers to one another, as the Washington-based artist’s “Warriors” single (released in June) was also produced by the English-born musician and singer. The release of this new music will lead to a new full-length album from Stone, expected to drop sometime in 2019.Stone has been a mainstay on the music charts this year with the releases of “Warriors” and “Brown Eyed Lover”, the latter of which featured American Idol contestant Dennis Lorenzo. The release of “Taste Of You” via ATO Records comes alongside a two-month North American fall tour, which began last week and will continue the next two nights at Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre.Discussing his inspiration for the track, Stone stated: “I had the opportunity to play an Aretha Franklin tribute show at Carnegie Hall last year and I was privileged to sing ‘Say A Little Prayer’. What an iconic song! Getting to play that song in such an inspiring environment made me want to write a song just like. This was my attempt. My personal tribute. Love you Aretha.”Listen to “Taste Of You” below:<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Allen Stone Tour Dates:10/17 – Los Angeles, CA @ Fonda Theatre10/18 – Los Angeles, CA @ Fonda Theatre ^ [SOLD OUT]10/20 – San Diego, CA @ Humphreys Concerts by the Bay ^ [SOLD OUT]10/21 – Tucson, AZ @ 191 Toole ^10/23 – Oklahoma City, OK @ Tower Theatre ^10/24 – San Antonio, TX @ Rustic ^10/26 – Dallas, TX @ The Statler Ballroom ^10/27 – Austin, TX @ Emo’s ^10/28 – Houston, TX @ House of Blues ^10/31 – Mobile, AL @ Soul Kitchen ^11/02 – Orlando, FL @ Beacham Theater ^11/03 – Tampa, FL @ The Ritz Ybor ^11/04 – Ft.
