    Joel Ross is due to make his debut with the record KingMaker early next month, and to further hype up the Blue Note release, he’s dropped “Yana.”

    The penultimate track of KingMaker, “Yana” is a melodic, six-minute journey that foregrounds Ross’ nimble travels on the vibraphone. Pianist Jeremy Corren also features heavily on the tune.

    KingMaker, which also includes first single “Ill Relations,” drops May 3. Listen to “Yana” here:
