Kota the Friend Sets the Stage for 'Lyrics to Go, Vol. 5' with Stirring New Single "YUMA"


Kota the Friend, the illustrious Brooklyn-based artist, is kickstarting the new year with an evocative prelude to his highly anticipated project, 'Lyrics to Go, Vol. 5.' His latest offering, "YUMA," emerges as a spellbinding synthesis of jazz elements and rap, now available for streaming on FLTBYS Music and Entertainment LLC & Venice Music.

"YUMA" unfolds the tale of a relentless nomad, adrift yet undeterred. In this soul-searching track, Kota delves deep into the existential musings of sacrifices unrewarded, echoing the tumult and triumphs inherent in the pursuit of one's dreams. "The inspiration for 'YUMA' came while touring in 2023," Kota reveals. "It's a reflection of our journey, a band of inner-city dreamers traversing the nation, and the raw essence of that experience."

Accompanying the single is a visually arresting music video set in a desolate desert landscape where time is a mere spectator, and the sands sway to Kota's rhythm. The video is an invitation to experience "YUMA" in a visual format and is available for viewing online.

Recorded during his headline 'Flowers For My Friends' tour, "YUMA" is not just a song but a milestone in Kota's burgeoning career. The tour, in promotion of his critically acclaimed album 'PROTEA,' spanned 20 cities, starting in Pittsburgh and culminating in a packed New York venue, marking a triumphant chapter in Kota's journey.

As the successor to "OREGON," "YUMA" continues Kota's artistic penchant for geographically inspired titles and stands as a tantalizing preview of what 'Lyrics to Go, Vol. 5' holds. Fans and critics alike are eagerly anticipating the full reveal of the album, scheduled for release on January 25th.

For those captivated by the lyrical prowess and soulful beats of Kota the Friend, "YUMA" is a testament to his evolving artistry and a harbinger of more captivating narratives to come. Stay tuned for the unveiling of 'Lyrics to Go, Vol. 5' and immerse yourself in the world of Kota the Friend.
