Without a hint of a warning, Soundway have released a preview of the forthcoming collaboration between Débruit & Alsarah. After an apparently lengthy collaboration between the Sudanese-born singer and the French producer the resulting LP is due for release in November.
Alsarah’s story is an interesting one – you can get more info on the release via the label’s website – and her collaboration with Débruit is eclectic and exciting in equal measures. ‘Alkoan Baladi’ is the only track available right now, and although judging the LP from this alone would be foolish, the project is certainly more a carefully constructed collaboration rather than some sort of novelty mash-up. The footwork inspired styles associated with Débruit are lurking in the background, but the magic in this first offering is definitely down to the haunting vocal style that has been so delicately incorporated and built upon.
You can pre-order the album from the Soundway web store right now, and be sure to hear more about the project between now and the release date towards the end of the year.
