Can it really be thirty years since The Brand New Heavies’ debut album first strutted its way into the public eye with a romantic’s heart, a hedonist’s spirit and a Superfly sensibility?
May 1990 The Brand New Heavies released ‘that blue album’ and with it came a winning formula which would go on to earn them 16 top 40 hits and three million worldwide album sales not to mention two UK Platinum albums. Emerging at the heart of the Acid Jazz scene, their self-titled 1990 debut made an instant impact with audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and over the last three decades the band have not let up releasing enduring classics such as You Are The Universe, Midnight At The Oasis & Dream Come True to name but a few.
To celebrate these thirty years we’re releasing a limited edition 7-inch vinyl, the first 7-inch release since Stay This Way came out in 1992. The 7-inch will contain the vocal performances of both Beverley Knight and N’Dea Davenport on Beautiful and Getaway respectively and as well as this we’ve put together a digital only extended player featured unreleased tracks from TBNH plus some wonderful ‘club ready’ remixes.
Beautiful Ft. Beverley Knight
Getaway Ft. N’Dea Davenport
