Fresh from her critically acclaimed fourth studio album “CELIA” - named one of the 10 Best Albums of 2020 by Time Magazine, multiple award-winning afrobeats star Tiwa Savage has made a glorious return with the release of the beautiful track “Tales By Moonlight” featuring Ghana’s Amaarae.

Tiwa Savage taps Amaarae for Water & Garri EP

“Tales By Moonlight” is the first official single released from her internationally acclaimed EP, “Water & Garri” which was released a few days ago through Motown Records. Tiwa describes the EP as her “most spiritual journey through music so far.”

Produced by Cracker Mallo, "Tales By Moonlight” references a children’s television program with the same title. The show was set in a village and featured an adult who would read old folk stories and fairytales to a group of young children.

“On this song I remember (that) program I watched as a child and I’m basically saying that I want to experience the fairytales with the happy endings that were in those stories - this is the kind of love that I want to feel,” Tiwa comments.

“Tales By Moonlight" sees Tiwa team up with Ghanaian-American singer-songwriter Amaarae. Highlighted as Beats 1 Breakout Star of 2020, Amaaarae adds her breathy soprano vocals over this soulful afro sound.

“Tales By Moonlight” is available to stream NOW on all platforms.
