The second single to be released from Claptone’s second studio album, FANTAST — slated for a June 8 debut via Different Recordings and [PIAS] —  “Stay The Night” is a tonal deviation from its predecessor, “In The Night.”

A plunge into sonic obscurity, “Stay The Night” couples the low-pitched, gravelly vocals of TENDER’s James Cullen with a pulsating baritone background beat. “Stay The Night” cultivates a drama distinct in its muted sound and its organ-inspired chords and provocative punches of synth work, both of which affect an eeriness that is duly titillating and engrossing.

“‘Stay The Night’ is a very honest song and TENDER tell a story which deeply resonates with me,” Claptone said of the production. “The last track I released was the uplifting ‘In The Night,’ but I need you to experience the other side of my night, and give you a deeper insight into my heart; the shadows that I cast as well as the shadows that haunt me.”
