Mateo invites you into his world with his latest mixtape Suite 823. The R&B singer-songwriter serves up nine tracks including “Carry On,” a duet with Stacy Barthe (“Looking You Up”), and a stripped-down cover of Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans,” with production by Kerry “Krucial” Brothers and John Ehmann.
“I decided to create Suite 823 to give my fans a journey into my life. To me, Suite 823 (aka “Thinking of You” in numeral code) is a place where I was able to reflect on past love, fans, and my future,” said Mateo. “Everyone’s Suite 823 looks different and has different content.

Mateo is currently in the studio working on his Interscope Records debut, due this fall.
