There’s nothing better than a new song from one of your favourite artists. But a new release… with a bonus feature from another one of your favourites? True heaven.
So, Charlotte Day Wilson, then. Collaborator supreme, a vocalist of exquisite emotion, her singular catalogue has won co-signs from global heavy hitters such as Drake. She remains utterly committed to her own sense of audio communication, however, an artist unswayed by headlines, and streaming figures.
Signed to XL Recordings, new single ‘Forever’ is sublime. Few can hit the notes Charlotte Day Wilson hits, and her commitment to emotional truth remains thoroughly undimmed. Her audio building is subtle but distinctive, the spartan template resulting in something so pure, and so evocative.
Swedish R&B force Snoh Aalegra joins Charlotte for an all-too-rare feature, with the song tethered to a warped and woozy take on the Foundations’ classic ‘Baby, Now That I Found You’.
Truly exquisite soul music, ‘Forever’ comes equipped with visuals sculpted by Sara Melvin.
Tune in now.
