One of our favorites has his sights set on 2021. And he's kicking things off with his new single "Cruise Control," the title track for his upcoming debut EP.

While Kessler has had our attention for a while, this new song really showcases his growth and his strengths, as he leans in on his undeniable vocal abilities with confidence, allowing himself to be more vulnerable.

The song is reflective of Kessler's own coming of age, but perhaps it's the fact that it was written during the middle of the pandemic, as the singer had just graduated college, that it's also instantly universally relatable, inspired by the unknown and a future which still seems unclear.

The full EP is out in March, but the Josefine Cardoni-directed video for "Cruise Control" can be seen below.
