Singer and producer, Addie Brik is set to release a new single on her own Itza Music label on the 6th of March 2020.
‘Take Me To The Riverside’ is the latest track in an ongoing series of digitally releases that feature some of Brik’s recently re-discovered and sought after archive studio material. The new single, the follow up to ‘When You Have’ and ‘I Know What I Do’, is an inspired collaboration with the late and esteemed Cameroonian musician, author and poet Francis Bebey.
Joyous and totally uplifting, the version here is originally from 2001 and also features Terry Edwards on horns, Danny Frankel (drums) and Dan Schwartz (bass).
Addie explains how it came about:
“Years ago, in Box, on a balmy hot sunny day at Peter Gabriel’s writers week at Real World Studios, I was walking by a cottage studio and stopped dead in my tracks to the most intriguing music and sounds coming from it. I thought I’d linger a while to listen and slunk down in the grass under the window where no one could see me. In a little while a head popped out, gave me a jolt and said, “if you want to hear, come in”. I did just that and that’s the first time I met Francis Beybe and over the next years we became good friends”
