Video Premiere: Alice Russell "Heartbreaker" Live In Session

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.Alice Russell - "Heartbreaker" Live in Session

OK let's start with the basics: Alice Russell is the truth. She is a fact-type statement. She is correct information. She's all McCoy, no Hatfield, is what I'm trying to say. But please don't take my questionable word on this subject. Just hit play on this live-in-session performance of her next single, which Okayplayer is hella chuffed to present in it's World Premiere. "Heartbreaker" is a house made of handclaps, spanish guitar, blues piano and a vocal just a notch too raunchy to be called doo-wop. Russell and crew build that house up brick by soulful brick and then tear it down to the foundation right in front of our eyes--just to let you know she ain't nothing to eff with. This woman is not just a heartbreaker, she will break your favorite vocalist's kneecaps in a fair fight. "Heartbreaker" is slated for release as a single on October 15th. We suggest you make a note of it.
