Gwen Bunn, the prolific Grammy-nominated artist, songwriter, producer, has joined up with one of her all time idols, Faith Evans, on her newest single “Between the Lines” off her forthcoming new project on Island Records. Bunn’s respect for those who inspire her led to her collaboration with the legendary R&B star, whose single “Soon As I Get Home” celebrated its 25th anniversary this week and is lovingly sampled on their new song. Listen to “Between the Lines” HERE.
On working with Evans, Bunn says, “This song was special for many reasons. The song is about longing for someone and knowing that y’all are better together than apart regardless of the ups & downs. Legendary moment because Faith doesn’t do many features and her being willing was an honor.”
Faith also spoke about the collaboration, “Gwen’s A&R, Jermi Thomas is fam and he reached out to let me know that Gwen wanted me to work on one of her records. When they sent me the track, I was honored that she sampled my song, “Soon As I Get Home” and wanted me to be on it. I went in and laid backgrounds, ad-libs and wrote a new verse…and here we are! The timing of “Between The Lines” coming now is so crazy, especially because it’s also the same week as the 25th Anniversary of my classic single. I think it’s amazing to see a dope new artist like Gwen introducing my music to this generation’s R&B fans….She’s next!!!”
