Singer, songwriter, rapper, and producer Johnny Yukon has released his new song “Keys.” Written by Yukon and co-produced by Yukon and Burns, the track is complete with head-nodding beats, hypnotic instrumentation, and compelling sonics that complement Yukon’s verses. “Keys” is available on all streaming services, along with a companion music video directed by Jay R. Weneta, captured in the vast desert of Temecula, California. In the cinematic new visual, Yukon embarks on an epic hot air balloon ride, showcasing his knack for illustrating his creative vision on the big screen.
Of the new track, Yukon commented, “This song comes from a real place and story and is about parts of me I’m ashamed of. The synth line matched the darkness of the truth, so the song almost wrote itself.” He elaborated, “The video shows a story of escape — an escape from pain or reality, a longing to fly away, to jump into the vastness and disappear.”
