Mapei, the Rhode Island-born and Stockholm-raised singer, returns after a hiatus with a new single and album, scheduled for next year via Downtown Records. "Don't Wait," to be officially released on November 5th, was co-written and produced by Magnus Lidehall. It pairs spare percussion and finger snaps with Mapei's rich vocals, which get treated with a trippy digital effect on the final pre-chorus. Mapei calls it "21st-century gospel or doo-wop."
