Listen and watch the visual above now and read a quote from YASSiN on the release below now.

“Take My Time was written in the early months of quarantine, on a dark rainy day. I wrote this song as an escape from the circumstances of the world. It is a love song that embodies the pure joy of being with someone you love. It has a hint of silliness to it. It is a dreamers song about forgetting the complications of the world and feeling free with your partner. I say at the beginning of the track “Maybe stand a little closer” Which is something I hope people do when they dance to this one. It’s also me dreaming of the day where we don’t have to be 6 feet apart from each other. This song to me is about true love that you’d spend a life waiting for, hope that gets you up and has you moving forward even in bleak days, and pure ridiculous fun.” – YASSiN
