"A Way Out" is the new single from Phoenix-based musician Youceff Kabal. It is out digitally November 11, 2016 via Manneken Records.

"Heavily utilizing autotune and sweeping instrumentals, coupled with personal lyricism, Youceff Kabal curates a sound that feels almost ironically raw and emotional. Like 808s & Heartbreaks-era Kanye, Kabal standardizes overt technicality with organic affectation, maintaining an innate and tangible truth throughout the four-minute track. “A Way Out” uniquely addresses ubiquitous emotion, wholly and purposefully presenting it in a manner that has seldom been achieved before."
- Atwood Magazine

"The song, laced with a poignant instrumental and meaningful lyrics, addresses the need to find one’s self before finding a significant other. “A Way Out” has a melancholic melody that resonates heavily with anyone who is in the pursuit of love and happiness."
- The Quiet Lunch


If I ever find a way out,
would it matter how it came about?
A way to forever be with you, I'd never
wanna go back; when I see her,
knowing there's just nothing better.

I want you however you want to.

Can I find it in myself, to be me and no one else,
for the one that I want to be with when I can't
find it in anything else, hoping in and of itself
just won't do, I'll need to keep my cool surely to
find a way out.
