Following on from “Arabia” featuring Mystro and Maseo Plug 3 from De La Soul, comes the next FREE download, “Common Ground” featuring Miss Baby Sol.
This track is also taken from the forthcoming B.E. Bowie influenced/inspired EP “Whatever Happened To Major Tom” scheduled for free download release on November 15th, 2010.
“I like this song from the EP because of the loop, the beat where I was trying to do something almost D & B but not really in that arena, and most importantly the soulful song not written from a soul perspective. Lyrically Miss Baby Sol wrote from a very personal place and it shows in the vocal. I like songs where I can listen back and I can tell you exactly how the lyrics came about and what was going on in that persons life. I love the vocal performance on this song. Miss Baby Sol’s vocals towards the end just get me every time.”
Although Miss Baby Sol and Colin Emmanuel have been in and out of the studio throughout 2010 working on various projects, this is the first collaboration between the two made available for release since their cover of Aaliyah’s “It’s Whatever” for Soul Culture’s (now Soul Train Award Nominated.. So get your votes in) Aaliyah Revisited Tribute.
