A couple weeks ago came news that Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge were releasing a new album titled The Midnight Hour, and with the announcement came a song from the forthcoming project — “Questions.”
Now, the pair has released another track from the album which features the late Luther Vandross. Titled “So Amazing,” the track is a rendition of Vandross’ song of the same name, which originally appeared on his 1986 album Give Me the Reason.
“We are huge lovers of Luther Vandross’ music,” the duo said in a statement. “Our adoration towards Luther was mentioned in a passing conversation, which prompted SONY Legacy to invite us to meet with the members of Luther’s estate. We discussed many things and a question was posed, if one could reimagine Luther’s music in 2018 what would it sound like? Our version of ‘So Amazing’ is an example of a unique and special collaboration towards reimagining one of his classic songs.”
The pair also teased a forthcoming “announcement…in relation to Luther Vandross and Spotify.”
Prior to “So Amazing,” Muhammad and Younge released two other songs from The Midnight Hour — “Questions” and “Black Beacon.”
The album drops on June 8.
