The perfect sountrack for the upcoming Ibiza season
Coming into the spotlight when hip hop was transformed into the ethereal urban hymns that came to be known as trip hop by bands like Massive Attack, Portishead and her own Morcheeba, Skye Edwards returns this November with a new solo album.
‘Back to Now’ features a more upbeat Skye than usual, the single Featherlight from the album bouncing along nicely with the kind of catchy melody that will find you pressing “repeat” repeatedly. Says Skye: “I can hardly contain myself, I’m so excited for you to hear my new record! Be ready!” Meanwhile Skye is busy recording a new album with Morcheeba which is due out in 2013. Skye will launch ‘Back to Now’ at London’s Bush Hall on November 1. A remix of Featherlight has just been released by German electronic genius Ulrich Schnauss.
