Outasight has released his single of “Automatic”; the 2nd single from the highly anticipated sophomore album from one of the most versatile artists in hip hop. “Automatic”, has all of the key elements of a dance floor anthem. From the driving beat and hypnotic synths to the funky guitars and Outasight’s one-of-a-kind vocals, “Automatic” is the perfect vessel to introduce Outasight’s return to the world of independent music where he once cut his teeth as one of the most buzzed about artists around.
Outasight is a Yonkers born-and-bred singer/songwriter/rapper whose rise to prominence took him from a star of the New York City mixtape circuit to a record deal with Warner Bros. Records. He’s best known for his single “Tonight Is the Night”, which you might recall from the 2011 Pepsi Commercial featuring Ray Charles, Britney Spears, Kanye West, Michael Jackson and Mariah Carey. “Tonight Is The Night” was also the main theme to the 2012 NHL All Star game, at which Outasight performed, and the 1000th episode of WWE Monday Night RAW. Capitalizing on the success of “Tonight Is The Night” and the strength of the overall album, Outasight’s major-label debut Nights Like These (Warner Bros. Records) debuted November 23rd, 2012 and peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Heatseeker’s Chart.
With the move back to working as an independent artist, Outasight is making the most of the freedom that comes with being in charge of your own creative destiny. The new batch of Outasight music slated for release is every bit as dynamic as Nights Like These, but with a return to the edge and swagger that made Outasight such a special artist in the first place.
Stay tuned as Outasight unveils more audible treats from his new full-length debuting early next year.
