Lay This body Down
Singles come and go on a daily basis at RMHQ, with our emphasis being on Albums; but as you know some manage to hit us between the eyes and we simply need to pass them on to the world at large.
This arrived an hour ago and alongside the fantastic video has meant an album I’d intended listening to is still in it’s jewel case.
“Sam Lee’s new single ‘Lay This Body Down’ is a re-working of an African American spiritual, with heavy echoes of Greek mythology’s River Styx path to the afterlife. It arrives alongside a striking new video created with choreography featuring dancers from London’s Ballet Rambert.
Taken from his upcoming album, ‘Old Wow’ is due for release on January 31, and produced by Suede’s Bernard Butler and also featuring a rare appearance from Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser.”
