RYF unveils ‘Can I Can U’, the third single off Deep Dark Blue, her new album due for release on Bronson Recordings on April 5th on LP, CD and all digital platforms. The single features Skin from Skunk Anansie.

Available on all digital platforms as of today, March 15, 2024, the new single Can I Can U feat. Skin is an electro dance house bomb with the grit of lashing alt-rock guitars, where the ideals of queer and feminist subversion, against homophobia, transphobia and patriarchy, deflagrate in a refrain that is a true anthem to be memorized and sung at the top of one’s lungs: “Can I? Can U / Be outrageously queer and stand here without any fear?”

Can I Can U feat. Skin was born in collaboration with Skin herself who, after writing her own parts, interpreted them in her unmistakable voice-one of the most acclaimed in the UK-for generations of music fans. The song became an enthralling back-and-forth, a duet that mounts in anger and energy until the liberating explosion of the chorus, sung in unison, and the dark, syncopated finale.

R.Y.F. unveils ‘Blue feat. Moor Mother’, the first single off Deep Dark Blue, her new album due for release on Bronson Recordings on April 5th on LP, CD and digitally.

“Blue feat. Moor Mother” is the first single and opening track from “Deep Dark Blue,” the new album by Italian artist Francesca Morello — better know as R.Y.F., to be released April 5th 2024 via Bronson Recordings.

“Blue” was written following a catamaran trip on the Stromboli Sea. Speaking on the single, R.Y.F. says : “The song revolves around the soothing stun in observing that intense blue, which called to me and sucked me in. I thought it was an appealing song to give to Moor Mother for a collaboration; I adore everything she does, and we became friends after playing together a couple of times. Her textual contribution is perfect and the result literally blew me away – every time I listen to it and hear her voice grafted onto the music, I can’t help but smile.”

The cliff-hanger theme of suffering poetically opens the circle in ‘Blue’. Groove with brassy beats, hip hop cadences and an ancestral, nocturnal mood. R.Y.F. sings “Blue is in my blood / Under my skin” while Moor Mother’s spoken word descends imperiously from above, as if it were that of a deity capable of instilling renewed vigor. “Electro-punk is always there but overall there is much more, indulging an extreme variety of atmospheres. My will to compose an abysmally blue album.”
