NEW YORK, July 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Francesco Yates has announced he will be joining ATCK (All The Cool Kids) on fifteen Backstreet Boys tour dates in the United States.
ATCK is a creative collaboration between A.J. Mclean (Backstreet Boys) and DJ Lux (Brandon Mashburn). Yates has also performed with ATCK several times in the past, as well as appearing on ATCK single releases including “Don’t Call Me Back” and “Hurts To Love You”.
The 26-year-old Toronto-based Yates began his professional career when he signed a major label record deal at the age of 16, propelling him into a worldwide spotlight. He is the recipient of platinum-selling plaques, more than a billion streams, and multiple other successes including performing on Robin Schulz’s 2015 global smash hit “Sugar” and serving as direct support on Justin Timberlake’s 2018/2019 Man of the Woods tour.
Buoyed by the influence of pop music royalty past and present, Yates’ latest single, “Jimi”, showcases his masterful evolution as he delivers one of his most confident and alluring vocal performances to date, along with his world-class musicianship and airtight pop songcraft. The track transports the listener with his modern take on up-tempo 90s R&B Pop with Funk-filled bass lines and a prominent guitar solo that Hendrix would surely approve of. “Jimi” can be found on Spotify along with the official music video on YouTube.
