ALOE BLACC - Lift Your Spirit ?????

The soulful singer seizes the spotlight in his major-label debut. Best known for I Need a Dollar and his Avicii collaboration Wake Me Up, Aloe Blacc has successfully made his mark on the new emerging soul-pop scene.

"What I want to do with music is make people happy," Blacc told Billboard of his album. "So every song, save for maybe one, is about something that could potentially lift your spirit."

Blacc delivers an album where retro sounds are fused effortlessly with the future of soul; a smooth soulful pop collection from the playbooks of Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder.

There’s a relatively stripped-down version of Wake Me Up that underscores what a great song it is, while The Man tips its hat to Elton John’s Your Song earning approval from Elton himself.

Perfect Sunday afternoon listening. Expect to hear some big remixes in the clubs later in the year.

It’s really lovely to have assurance from the company arranging the night that we will be looked after, even after we have paid the money - Charlotte
