    London drummer Moses Boyd has released “Shades of You,” featuring R&B/soul singer Poppy Ajudha.

    Ajudha’s stratospheric vocals shine on the multi-textured, shape-shifting track, which features frequent Boyd collaborator Theon Cross on tuba. “Give away all my colors / I’m left with shades of blue / Can’t handle your darkness / But I want all the shades of you,” Ajudha trills on the chorus.

    “Shades of You” and previous single “Only You” will feature on Boyd’s upcoming solo debut album, Dark Matter. The record arrives on Valentine’s Day via Boyd’s own label, Exodus Records.
