*Pre-Order / Shipping mid-October*
Acid Jazz is very excited to announce the return of illustrious soul singer Dee C. Lee with the very special double A-side single – ‘Don’t Forget About Love’ / ‘Be There In The Morning’. Pre-order is now live for 7” vinyl, housed in a striking blue variation of our new graphic house bag, with the digital single hitting all streaming platforms on Friday, 29 September.
‘Don’t Forget About Love’ finds one of the finest and most in-demand British soul singers of her generation in outstanding voice on a gentle, uplifting song written by Dee with Mike McEvoy and Ernest McKone as an antidote to the hate and negativity of lockdown. ‘Be There In The Morning’ was originally co-written and recorded by Australian soul singer Renée Geyer. Reminded of the song by Acid Jazz’s Eddie Piller, Dee was enthusiastic to record her own version and delivers a euphoric vocal on another impressive return to form.
Dee’s relationship with Acid Jazz goes back to The Style Council days, and it was the 2019 documentary about the group, ‘Long Hot Summers’, that renewed Dee’s friendship with the our founder, Eddie Piller. As a result, Ed and label partner Dean Rudland were proud to sign Dee and add her to the roster, and release her first new music for 25 years.
Look out for further announcements from Dee in the coming months.
