Reliable sources tell us, Pitchfork, that Booka Shade are preparing to release their 5th studio LP ‘Eve’. Eve comes three years after their last long player ‘More’ and whilst Booka Shade have remained a steady force within electronic music its probably fair to say that they are yet to replicate the heights of their critically accalimed Movments record, which included the iconic 2005 singles ‘Mandarine Girl’ and of course ‘Body Language’, which I recently discovered was sampled by Will.I.Am for his record ‘Get Your Money‘, its awful!. That aside you can now stream the lead single from the new LP ‘Love, Inc’ via Pitchfork……and it is perhaps their most widely accessible tune of recent years with a distinct lead vocal that should give it crossover appeal, fans of the last two LPs may not approve.
Booka Shade ‘Eve’ is available for pre-order and ‘Love, Inc’ for purchase via iTunes now
(Expected Release Nov 1st)
