Winston Surfshirt Teams Up With Talib Kweli For The Smooth Jam, ‘Maybe I’m In Love With You’

Smooth mover Winston Surfshirt returned last week with a bright new single, Maybe I’m In Love With You. It features the added skills of hip-hop legend Talib Kweli and is sure to lighten up the mood and get a smile on your dial.

Maybe I’m In Love With You carries all the mood-lifting hooks we’ve come to expect from Winston Surfshirt, toe-tapping flow, upper lip curling bass work and those beautiful brass hooks make this one a winner; add that feel-good vocal delivery from both Winston and Talib and we’ve got a hit!

“Maybe I’m In Love With You’ was a song we wrote in London a few years ago. Me, Bustlip & Bone came up with the beat on our first day there, and when the rest of the band arrived, we put down words instantly. I remember waking Bustlip up while recording vocals in the lounge room. There’s a sense of nostalgia with this track, it takes me straight back to walking around sunny London, listening to the demo on repeat. Then Talib took the whole record to another level entirely! He was at the top of our list for a feature thinking there was no way he would say yes but we got onto him a couple months later and he agreed to jump on. Bit of a career defining moment for sure.”Winston Surfshirt

It seems there is no way of faulting anything Winston does; Maybe I’m In Love With You is another addition to a very impressive catalogue of sound. It’s available everywhere via our good pals at Sweat It Out.
