i wanna know what love is.

August 5, 2009

I am thrilled to present to you the first exclusive official taste from my mixtape and album.  (well, you’ve heard stuff from it before, but now it’s nearly ready, I’m coming “official” with it 😉 ) This is a cut I recorded tonight, and it turned out so well that it’s immediately onto my High Fashion mixtape.  It’s an acapella version of Foreigner’s “I Wanna Know What Love Is”.  I was inspired to cover it after it came out that Mariah Carey is doing her own version for her highly anticipated forthcoming album Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel.  Although I had always liked the song, the news made me go back and really listen to it and appreciate how melodic and powerful the chorus is, and how evocative the lyrics are.  Especially in my current situation (do you think if I played it for R, he would fall in love with me? 😉 )… so I couldn’t resist creating my own version – just a lil’ acapella with a couple of harmonies and falsettos.  I truly hope you enjoy it, and I’ll drop more news about my mixtape and the whole Quiet Storm album in due course.

Download the m4a (iTunes file) here.

Stream it on my myspace (with a few other songs which are on the album) here.

I’ve also included your first look at some of my Quiet Storm artwork in the video, so I hope you enjoy that too and start to see the whole nocturnal / high fashion ideas behind the artwork I’m creating.  Please comment, share with your friends, pass it around and publicise the song, and of course let me know if the links go down or if you want me to re-up them to other servers.
