Tune of the Week // Shura feat Talib Kweli – Touch
This song has been rolling round my head for longer than when Annie Mac made this version with Talib Kweli her ‘Hottest Song in the World’. The original version has been knocking round for two years now but hasn’t been available to purchase for the past while.
As the Indecision, 2Shy and White Light were released, it became apparent that a re-released ‘Touch’ would probably be the track to run up to the release of Shura‘s debut album.
‘Nothing’s Real’ hasn’t got a definite release date yet but it’s looking more like May, just before the Shepherds Bush Empire gig on May 26th, I suspect.
This remix or ‘alternative edit’ of Touch features Talib Kweli and really does add a different dimension to the track. Touch is a sultry ‘let’s get it on’ track, Talib Kweli’s contribution funks it up, lifts it and will bring the track to a different audience.
Did I mention it’s addictive? This track is so so addictive, put it on a loop now and save yourself the trouble later.
