Brand New Heavies "Sunlight" & "Addicted" + New LP

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

UK soul institution The Brand New Heavies recently leaked "Sunlight" and "Addicted" - two new singles from their forthcoming album Forward. Decades of baited breath later, fans can finally exhale with the announcement that the group's efforts to crowd-fund their indie release have succeeded. The good news: the album will feature N'dea Davenport - the only voice that has ever truly completed their package of rich horns and cosmic boogie. The bad news: only on two tracks--much to the chagrin of Heavies purists she will not be anchoring the entire album; a move some might consider enough to avoid looking forward to the release. Don't be so hasty. In her absence the group has deferred to Dawn Joseph - most recently recognizable from Kylie Minogue's 2008 X Tour and Spandau Ballet's 2010 Reformation Tour - an amazing vocalist who will surely not disappoint at the helm. "Sunlight" and "Addicted" are disco-inspired dance tracks to prime your ears for what's to come. We suggest you get your soul clap ready.
