Desarae Dee Releases Single 'Late Arrival'

Canadian pianist/keyboardist and producer Desarae Dee has released her latest single, "Late Arrival The Remix." "Late Arrival" is one of 6 songs off of Dee's 2016 debut EP, 20. Exactly 5 years later, she is celebrating the anniversary of the project by re-releasing a new version of the track, showing how art is never truly finished and celebrating the process of being an artist.

A song that showcases the musical growth and evolution of Dee over the last 5 years, "Late Arrival" has "all the chords you could think of" and stays true to the spontaneous and unconventional musical style that Dee is widely known for. Consistently bending genres and pushing musical boundaries, Dee gives listeners a "sit in the pocket, laid back and chill" vibe that is a fusion of jazz, neo-soul, hip-hop and gospel nuances.

"Late Arrival is truly a song for the hopelessly soulful, the 'start your day' workaholic coffee drinkers and those who appreciate true musicianship," says Dee.

The re-imaged track is produced by Desarae Dee, composed by Desarae Dee, Connor Chan (King Chino), and Caleb Gathright, with piano and synths by Desarae Dee, hammond organ by Caleb Gathright, bass guitar by Kemy Siala, guitar and additional synths by Connor Chan (King Chino), and mixing and mastering by Adam Pondang.

Desarae Dee has released 16 singles, 2 EPs, 1 album, and has more singles and long awaited visuals slated to be released later this year.
