William Carl Jr: Over

XXL's Playlist For The Government Shutdown, Sam Valenti's nostalgic #PrivateJam, Darkside's "Paper Trails" and more

A soulful, synth-driven debut R&B single, “Over,” by Londoner William Carl Jr, thoughtfully reflects on the slow, lingering end to a transatlantic, long-distance relationship. The track bounces forward with a calm beauty in the face of regret and loss. After three years as the touring bassist for singer Holly Miranda, Carl Jr embarked on a solo project as a producer and performer. If this song is any indicator, we’ve got a lot more to look forward to.
