Out 6th November, the third instalment of the Tru Thoughts Covers compilation series brings together unique and captivating cover versions by
artists on the roster, that have been released and loved as album tracks, singles or one-offs.
Featuring covers of originals from a host of iconic artists including afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti; peripheral soul figure William DeVaughn; pre-eminent jazz fusion band Weather Report; American music innovator Duke Ellington; anthemic jungle duo Shy FX & Apache; golden Age hip-hop duet Pete Rock & CL Smooth; idiosyncratic and elliptical singer-songwriter Frank Ocean, plus many more - ‘Tru Thoughts Covers 3’ makes for an exceptional listen, recontextualising well-loved classics with a fresh edge.
As well as contributions from familiar Tru Thoughts faces there is an exclusive unreleased tune that has been sought out and signed specifically for this compilation, Adam Prescott and Deemas J’s collaborative flip of Peter Rock & CL Smooth’s - “They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y)”. Curated and compiled by Tru Thoughts A&R, founder and renowned DJ - Robert Luis, ‘Tru Thoughts Covers 3’ showcases another spectrum to the label:
“I find it fascinating how different artists re-work songs that are known in one genre and flip it to another place or update a song for a new audience within a genre. We always get interesting feedback and support for the covers, and it is always enjoyable putting them out into the world. We are now into the third volume of this series of compilations, and I feel these albums highlight a different creative side of Tru Thoughts artists who most of the time are writing original material.”
First Tru Thoughts Covers album since 2015. Limited 500, hand-numbered, ice cream coloured vinyl. -Includes 18 trackdownload card.
