The two titans of the Tru-Thoughts record label, Alice Russell & Quantic have finally bowed to pressure and hooked up for a full collaborative album.
As appetisers go “Look Around The Corner” will have fans of both artists counting the days until the LP drops in April (Pre-Order: UK / US).

Just listen to that big string section, gorgeous production, and of course Alice’s soulful vocals.  Recorded at Quantic’s Sonido del Valle studio in Cali, Colombia.
Tru-Thoughts report that Chicago’s Chess label was a big influence on the production aesthetic, and a mutual love of Minnie Riperton fed into the vocal melodies.

The Rubber Soul Show interviewed Alice about the new album – listen below and visit their Mixcloud page for more.

While we’re on the subject of  Quantic, here’s his remix of Oscar Sulley & The Uhuru Dance Band from a charity album Sound Affects Africa – the proceeds of which go to supporting health education initiatives worldwide.
