The acid jazz legends are back with one of their funkiest yet.
The funk is back. The Brand New Heavies have returned with an electrifying new single, premiered this week on BBC Radio 2. Featuring former collaborator N’Dea Davenport, ‘Getaway’ is an uplifting ode to escapism built on rolling grooves and sublime vocals.
Funk royalty and pioneers of the 90’s Acid Jazz scene, The Brand New Heavies have sold over 2.5 million records, achieved sixteen UK Top 40 singles and released two double Platinum-selling albums. Headed up today by founding members and principal songwriters Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy, the group are stronger than ever, continuing an incredible thirty-year run that’s seen them dominate pop charts the world over. They continue to record and perform live: catch them headlining Birmingham’s Mostly Jazz Festival this summer.
