Michael Brun and Shirazee Jam Sweetly On 'Soweto' Acoustic Version: Watch

Michael Brun and Shirazee 

Haiti's Michael Brun doesn't have to put on tropical airs. Island breezes run in his blood, and when he paired that sun-kissed feeling with singer-songwriter Shirazee's tale of South African love, it turned into a cool, musical caress called "Soweto," out today (Aug. 17).

Named for a township in the city of Johannesburg, "Soweto" is an ode to the blissful abandon of falling head-over-heels. It's easy to love, like love itself, and it becomes even more chill when Brun picks up his guitar.

The producer and singer got together once more to record this intimate rendition. Press play, close your eyes, and tilt your head to the side as you imagine a perfect day with those dearest to you. Shirazee's voice is hypnotic with the hint of an echo. Get lost in the reverie and let the music carry you miles away from your cares.

Brun has been real busy in 2018. The original "Soweto" dropped alongside another tune called "Jalouzi," both of which followed his Telemundo anthem for the World Cup "Positivo," based off his earlier work "Bayo." This acoustic cut might be the breeziest moment so far.

Cool down with "Soweto" below.
