Francisco Martin Releases New Song ‘Passenger Princess’
“Then you can let your hair down / Driving down the 1 next to a goddess,” Martin sings on the song’s chorus. “To be real with you I think I’m ’bout to fall in / You don’t have to leave just yet / My passenger princess.”
The song has a cool style and a funky beat that might just have you dancing along in the car, no matter what seat you’re in. The official art for the track shows Martin sitting in the driver’s seat while a crown rests on the dashboard.
“‘Passenger Princess’ brings timely joy to the table when you didn’t ask for it,” Martin said of the song in a press release. “Its free, radical-like soundscape and subtle pull for attention bridges the gap between my influences of indie rock and soul.”
