The Blue Stones, aka Tarek Jafar and Justin Tessier, have returned with a new summer single, Don’t Miss,” prior to kicking off a U.S. co-headlining tour with Des Rocs next Friday, June 10th, 2022 in Milwaukee and running through July 23rd in Columbus. The track, produced by The Blue Stones with Boonn (grandson/Demi Lovato), is out now via MNRK.

Discussing the single, the duo notes:

We wanted every listener to feel just as confident as we did while recording this song, and give them a theme to revel in their own accomplishments with. This song is the smirk you give to anyone who thinks you aren’t worth the hype.

The Blue Stones released their sophomore album, Hidden Gems, in the spring of 2021, following on from their 2019 debut Black Holes. They are working towards a “more textured, more layered and more confident” approach than anything they’ve done before, one that they hope to take even further on their upcoming LP.
