We’re only a few days away from Bishop Nehru and MF DOOM’s joint project, “NehruvianDOOM“, and after releasing the first track a few weeks ago, the Hip-Hop duo are back with a new track to whet our appetites. The project is set to drop on October 6th, a week later than originally planned. Keep it locked.
This is the type of stuff dreams are made of; two titans in the world of music coming together on one track. Premiered on Chris Evans’ BBC Radio 2 show, the long awaited duet between Queen and Michael Jackson finally sees the light of day. Here’s how the song came about;
The Queen and Michael Jackson duet, “There Must Be More to Life Than This”, began as a song written by Mercury during sessions for Queen’s 1981 album, Hot Space. The band recorded a backing track, but the song was never completed. Mercury visited Michael Jackson at his home studio in Los Angeles where he recorded Jackson singing the song for an unfinished version. Queen revived the track during sessions for 1984’s The Works, but again it was not finished. A year later, Freddie’s own version of the song surfaced on his debut solo album, 1985’s Mr. Bad Guy. This new production of the powerful ballad fuses Queen’s original backing track and Mercury and Jackson’s distinctive vocals, and has been produced and remixed by celebrated Madonna/Robbie Williams producer William Orbit.
It is a radio rip, but if I’m honest, it’s better than nothing! Enjoy!
This weeks #FGF track comes courtesy of Russian producer, Arty, with his take on London Grammar’s massive single, “Hey Now“. Taking away the tracks original chilled-out vibe, Arty does what he does best and gives the track a whole new sound; more up-tempo and guaranteed to give you that “Friday feeling”. If you like what you hear, be sure to hit up his soundcloud page for more remixes, as well as some dope original tracks. Happy Friday, World, and have a great weekend!
It’s annoying that they’ve split the final part of the trilogy into two parts, and even more annoying that “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay (pt. 2)” isn’t being released until November 2015! Either way, November 20th needs to hurry up; I’ve been looking forward to this movie for a long while now.
Breezy dropped his highly-anticipated “X” project at the top of the week, and to mark the release of his sixth album, I’ve selected his debut single as the #TBT record. Featuring Juelz Santana, “Run It” is lifted off his self-titled debut project and was released back in 2005. If you haven’t grabbed a copy of “X“, be sure to do so by clicking here. Personally, it’s one of the best pieces of work Chris has put out.
Apologies for the delay on this one. As we eagerly wait for his “Tetsuo & Youth” project to drop, Lupe liberates a new track for our listening pleasure.
Jessie Ware’s latest track sees the London artist take an R&B approach. “Kind Of…Sometimes…Maybe” will appear on her “Tough Love” project, which is set to drop on October 6th.
