Award-winning songwriter, producer and arranger JAMES DAY has his brand new album – ‘Natural Things’ – released on Expansion in mid May. The 12 tracker is the follow-up to DAY’S acclaimed last collection, ‘Better Days’; like that one, ‘Natural Things’ is destined to make huge waves on the modern soul scene. The LP is a tight collection of danceable grooves and sweet ballads and as before DAY has assembled a stellar cast to flesh out his musical ideas. Album guests include JEFF RAMSAY, U-NAM, IAN MARTIN, TIM OWENS, WALTER BEASLEY, GAVIN CHRISTOPHER, KAREN BERNOD and MICKELYN RODERICK who takes lead vocal on ‘Speak Love’ – a cut certain to be one of 2009’s top modern room anthems.
