Fine Right Here / Birthday Song


RELEASE DATE: 4/12/2024

Kendra is excited to release a new 45, featuring a special a bonus track written and recorded during the "I Am What I'm Waiting For' sessions, as well as a new 45-edit of her instant classic 'Birthday Song.'

The A-side 'Fine Right Here,' the bonus cut from Kendra Morris's latest LP 'I Am What I'm Waiting For' (which has received incredible support from the likes of Rolling Stone France, KCRW, WNYC, Flood Magazine, and countless others), takes a look into the deeply introverted side of Kendra. "This song is about being ok just sitting inside and missing the party," Kendra explains. "It’s the antithesis to FOMO." Written to accompany a rainy day, the song feels like you're being enveloped in a hug. Sonically, the track tips its hat to Ethiopian Jazz and soul of the 70s, like Rose Royce and the Delfonics. The warm vibraphone, sturdy bass line, and vocal reverb create a layered tapestry of sound that wraps around your shoulders and drifts into your ears.

The new 45-edit of 'Birthday Song' is for the DJs. It's an upbeat and funky jubilant jam that's ready and waiting to take the place of outdated standards. It's a party-doowop-ditty made for friends and for dancing. If The Zombies and Cheech and Chong started a party band, this would be their hit. The sonic influences pack a punch, with forward tastes of pop, doo wop, yacht rock, early punk, and 90s electronica that make this track undeniably catchy and utterly irresistible.  

Both tracks were co-written and produced by Torbitt Schwartz (AKA Little Shalimar) of Run the Jewels, 'Fine Right Here' is a welcome departure to the upbeat nature of 'I Am What I'm Waiting For' whereas 'Birthday Song' is set to be a celebratory go-to.
