Last year Atlanta soul man ANTHONY DAVID rekindled his professional relationship with fellow Atlantean ALGEBRA BLESSETT (the pair had first worked together in 2011!). Their 2022 duet ‘Heaven’’ (a cover of the BeBe & CeCe Winans Eighties song) was a worldwide soul hit and a 2023 remix gave it new legs.
The song manifested the obvious chemistry between the pair – a chemistry that’s even more apparent on the pair’s new single… an aching, country-tinged ballad ‘Need You Now’. The cut like the previous ‘Heaven’, is another cover – first released by country band Lady Antebellum in 2009 – but Anthony and Algebra make it all their own – taking it down to Soulsville but, as we said, retaining just a little of country music’s signature sentimentality!
Sensitive production’s down to Anthony’s long-time collaborator Eddie ‘Gypsy’ Stokes and this ‘Need You Now’ is good to go right now via Dome!
