Grace Jones single “Williams’ Blood” featuring guest vocals by Grace’s mother Marjorie

Grace Jones - Williams Blood

I’ve been listening to Grace Jones’ new “Williams’ Blood” single and remixes. They are GREAT. Especially the Mad Professor remixes. Excellent track. When I first listened to ‘Hurricane’, “Williams’ Blood” stood out – and the ‘Amazing Grace’ bit at the end gave me shivers up and down my spine. – Jenny May, BandWeblogs.com …

Enigmatic Grace, who this month released her first studio album in nearly twenty years, has been enjoying a stunning return. ‘Hurricane’, the new LP co-produced by Grace herself along with Ivor Guest, has seen Ms Jones collaborate with old friends Sly and Robbie as well as the likes of Brian Eno.

2008 has seen the recently crowned Q Awards Idol winner reenter the public consciousness with a sensational show at this year’s Meltdown Festival that was the live event of the year and startling recent appearances on Tonight With Jonathan Ross and Later… with Jools Holland.

A dramatic, uplifting and positive track, “Williams’ Blood” projects Grace’s versatility and relevance in today’s pop culture. With guest vocals from Grace’s mother, Marjorie, the track is a personal insight into the World of Ms Jones.

A video directed by the elusive (and highly selective) Chris Cunnigham is also in production, promising to add further kudos and attention to this already iconic campaign.

Remixes of the track come courtesy of Mad Professor, Greg Wilson and Ivor Guest – with more to be announced in the very near future.

Also Hurricane UK tour dates for January 2009 have been announced.

The album, ‘Hurricane’, was released 3rd November 2008.

Denise Lopez “Don’t You Wanna Be Mine” review

I’ve been listening to the Denise Lopez “Don’t You Wanna Be Mine” dance single and remixes set for release 16th June, 2008 on House Trained Records. I don’t recall hearing the track when it was originally released in the US in 1990, but that was awhile ago…and it hasn’t really received much airplay since then.

Apparently, though, “Don’t You Wanna Be Mine” was an underground dance anthem here in the UK. I’m actually quite surprised that it only reached #86 on the Billboard Dance Chart. Even with the help from famous production duo Robert Clivilles and (the late) David Cole from C&C Music Factory – which was a BIG name back then – it still didn’t come anywhere near top 10 or even top 20.

“Don’t You Wanna Be Mine” is a great dance track and Denise Lopez’s vocals are top notch. It’s good to see that it’s getting another chance with the release of a fresh modern remix in June, and is sure to be a huge hit in the clubs this summer.
