Nothing soothes the soul at the end of a long day like a bit of melodic nostalgia. British jazz singer Yazmin Lacey is serving fans with exactly what they need to calm their nerves during these trying times. Her breezy interpretation of the standard “I’ll Never Stop Loving You” is a blissful break from all the heavy and instead celebrates the euphoria that comes with true love. Though there were a number of notable versions to choose from, she selected Dodo Greene’s 1962 recording of the track from her album, My Hour Of Need, which proved to be a perfect fit for Yazmin’s sultry vocals.
This latest release serves as the sixth single from the forthcoming Blue Note Re:imagined compilation. The project is touted as a collection of Blue Note classics “re-imagined” by a few of the UK’s most celebrated young artists. The album features emerging talent as well as those who have made their mark across the globe including, Jorja Smith, whose remake of St. Germain’s “Rose Rouge” serves as the opening gateway to the experience. Jordan Rakei, Alfa Mist, Mr. Jukes and many others also contribute to what is sure to be another classic album from the label.
