Donn T and Chill Moody team up on the dreamlike “Clear”
Donn T‘s newest track “Clear” featuring Chill Moody is a rhythmic ode to life’s seemingly insignificant constants. The Philadelphia alternative R&B singer recently made her literary debut in a young adult anthology titled Behind the Song, edited by K.M. Walton. Her piece, “Time to Soar,” discusses the inspiration she pulled from Amy Winehouse’s “October Song,” about the late singer’s pet canary.
With the publication of her piece, Donn T took to the studio with Philly’s own Chill Moody to write a new track inspired by her story. The result: “Clear,” which is a companion song to “Time to Soar.” For the story behind the lyrics, she says “For almost 8 months, this bird would appear outside my window at various times of the day and call. The call was distinctive. I created the song around it.”
The song itself is slow and soothing, and Donn T’s smooth voice and storytelling lyrics capture the listener right from the beginning. The song is produced by Daru Jones (Jack White, Talib Kweli) and Ray Angry (Esperanza Spalding, Mark Ronson).
