Is there any stopping the multi-talented Gregory Porter? whose album ‘Liquid Spirit’ shot back into the top 10 of the UK Charts following the playing of a track he features on with Dance duo Disclosure.
‘Holding On’ was featured on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show earlier this week and is already receiving a lot of love.
The collaboration came about after Disclosure‘s tour manager used a Porter song for his first dance at his wedding. “We’re both from totally different worlds…when we came to write the song it was a really interesting process…” states the Laurence Brothers “…It was a totally different song – half the speed, half the tempo, really slow like a ballad. Then me and Guy essentially remixed our own song!”
Gregory Porter more known for Jazz doesn’t see the collaboration as that surprising, “I’m interested in all different types of music and different ways to get my musical expressions out, so I’m excited about it.”
‘Holding On’ by Disclosure ft Gregory Porter will be released on July 17 but is available to pre-order now on iTunes.
