French soul band THE PRINCIPLES OF JOY are led by keyboardist Ludo Bors (who’s also known by the wonderful “other” name, Norman Smuggler!).  Monsieur Bors/Smuggler also writes the material and owns the label, Q Sounds, to which the Principles are signed and right now he and his band mates are currently working on a new album, their third.

While we wait, the Principles have just released a single as a taster. It’s a stark, soulful groove, ‘I Was Wrong’. Deep and mellow, it shows off all the passion and power of lead singer Rachel Yarabou’s outstanding voice. Our now!
