Great news for fans of proper contemporary, feel good soul music – ever-reliable CORNELL CC CARTER is preparing a new album… ‘Let It Go!’. While we wait, there’s the first single to enjoy – like we just said, it’s slice of “proper contemporary, feel good soul music”, ‘So Nice’.
The song is a wonderful vehicle for CC’s unique voice, allowing him to show his tremendous range – from gritty baritone to smooth tenor. His delivery on ‘So Nice’ also serves to remind us that in the modern soul world our man is a real contender. Here he’s building on the success of albums like ‘One Love’ and ‘Next Life’ and showing why Narada Michael Walden recruited him as first choice backing singer and why he’s worked alongside soul greats like The Whispers, Kool and the Gang, The Temptations and Whitney Houston.
The perfectly KC-produced ‘So Nice’ is a welcome addition and perfect complement to Mr C’s catalogue and it would be a cheap shot to say that the song, performance and production are all so nice! No, they’re even better that just “nice” – they’re all spot on! Recommended and out April 28th.
