The song titled ‘Everyday’ is a collaborative effort with Nas-endorsed vocalist Nylo, and finds Conner showcasing the breadth of his musical knowledge playing a charango, a 6-string ukulele and a cuatro, among other instruments. it was premiered via iD magazine on Wednesday 30th March.

Nylo explains the origins of the collaboration: “I actually met Conner by hearing his music echoing out of an office in Epic Records. I ran in overwhelmed with joy that there was music without a dance, four-on-the-floor style kick pattern for once!”



Conner goes on to describe how the song came together: “The whole thing came about pretty naturally and patiently. We wrote the music one night together in LA, and didn’t finish writing lyrics or recording vocals until the next time we could get together in Dallas maybe four or five months later. It was an attempt at making an upbeat song, just to kind of step away from the usual moody and quiet vibes Nylo and I typically write”.
