“Can’t think of a better way to start my day, than wrapped up in your chocolate legs.”

That’s just the opening line of Aaron “AB” Abernathy‘s new song, “A Quarter After Morning,” out today. From there, the Deanwood resident uses a high-pitched falsetto to lay out exactly what he plans to do. “I know it’s after hours, I know you’re all alone,” AB sings. “You don’t have to touch yourself tonight.”

“A Quarter After Morning” is the sensual first single from AB’s forthcoming EP, 45 Series, Vol. III, About Last Summer…, out August 13. “It’s a song about those late-night hours,” AB tells Arts Desk. “You’re feeling those feelings and you just put it out there. I think it’s a very forward song.” The track recalls 1980s soul, carrying a soothing knock that works just as well in the daylight.

The EP tells a semi-personal tale of his past relationships. “I look at music like books,” says AB, who collaborates often with Detroit rapper/producer Black Milk. “Most of the stories are about me. I like to describe what we go through with these relationships.” Booty calls included.
