Mikky Ekko’s time to shine will soon be here. The Shreveport-born singer, who co-wrote and features on Rihanna’s Unapologetic smash “Stay,” has shared a promising demo for new solo cut “Disappear.” Like “Stay”, the song is fragile; the protagonist in both tracks seeks salvation in another person. Most notably, “Disappear” imagines a (very) alternate universe in which Animal Collective’s Panda Bear turns pop star by writing a big, sweeping piano ballad. If Ekko has more like this in store, his career could prove to have staying power, indeed.
